Yes mate, got some recoil therapy...and it was outstanding.

I am using a slip on pad now and it makes a helluva difference...actually quite comfortable to shoot. I have to revisit the load development...there was a mix of my lousy eyes not seeing the sights properly, even the ghost ring sight, and starting the loads off too light. I didn’t both posting the first 4 targets because they are rubbish, but the last targets show some potential at the higher load levels. Once I get a sight mount sorted, and a scope fitted, I’ll revisit the load development process. I’m even thinking a different powder might be an option...AR2209 instead of AR2206H.

I agree Pete...steel is a much better option than aluminium. It holds its shape, is less prone to stress fracturing and won’t wear under recoil.
B-Square has a good reputation, although I believe they may have discontinued the SMLE sight mount production. That’s ok, I am happy with a second hand, pre-used, pre-loved sight mount in good condition.

A couple of mates are doing a search in the US for me and have identified a sight mount made by Addley Precision in Canada.
Addley Precision Scope Mount

I’m not familiar with the brand, but one of the guys who is a collector of military rifles...and he shoots them...and he said they are good. The mount is machined from a solid piece of 6061 aluminium, which should mean that it is a good solid unit. I have some sight rings here, although if need be I’ll buy a new set to suit the mount. Then I’ll be able to revisit the load development.

it says look through on bottom....so your scope is going to be high.....having gone down this rabbit hole before.....admitidly with less precise system it brings up 2 issues
1 your face is well off stock to use scope
2 your trajectory is going to be all up the booey.....very it at hundy and it will be way high at 150 sort of thing if my memory is correct
if it lets you see irons and keeps scope low...tis all good....food for thought.

Elvis...I’ll have to see when I get the mount mate. I’m not interested in using the rifle’s factory sights...can’t see the bloody things, so I’ll have to work out how to use the scope.

Well, I have a sight mount inbound, and also a set of rings that will hopefully fit. Once the6 arrive and I get a scope fitted to the #5 SMLE I’ll be back into load development. I am also seriously considering a couple of different projectiles if these Hornady RN offering doesn’t work out as hoped. I’m researching the Sierra offerings as we speak.
