    I always liked the idea of the DeLisle, and thought they looked interesting. I collected SMLE's for a while, and always thought it would be neat to have in the fold. As for a project, I don't have access to the resources and would have to pay out the nose to get the work done, so I never went any further than just the idea.

    I did, although, have an idea about shortening a NoIV MkI* to 16" and threading the end 5/8-24 for my Gemtech. Loading 10gr of Trail Boss behind a very heavy cast lead bullet of .314 diameter in the 200-220gr should make it subsonic. What would be the difference between the .45 and the sub .303? It would be neat to find out, but alas I don't know exactly how to cut down the handguards of my sacrificial NoIV MKI* I have set aside for this project.

    A subsonic 303 would be the same as a subsonic 308win. Your only hang up would be the twist rate of the 303 not stabilizing the heavy bullet and possibly getting baffle strikes.

    I do need to put this side by side with my 308 subs and my TBAC Ultra 7

    Thanks for posting that. I had watched it about a year ago or so and forgotten about it.
    Great close up shot for reference.
    Those under folders are ugly as hell...would be awesome to make another lol

    I was hoping to make the shoot this weekend and bring the DeLisle along, but my event coordinator said i already have plans...
