Default Ammo for my SMLE .303


Next week I'm taking out my 1916 SMLE No. 1 mk III* to the range with a few friends. Awhile back I had some rounds keyhole and different box of ammo shot pretty well. I have only shot this rifle a couple of times. This is before I found out about different sized bullets being used by different ammo companies. Also, I believe I read that some of the barrels were of slightly varying size as well. I also remember reading something about boat tail rounds but don't remember if they shot well or terribly in these. Can anyone give me some ideas on options? Open to all advice as I just don't want people that have never shot one of these to be disappointed. For starters I was just going to bring a variety of brands of .303 ammo I already have and if one box shoots poorly switch to a different one. I do not own any .303 military surplus right now, just commercial ammo.

Thank you,
