Okay, so I have an Enfield bandoleer but have not got any loaded stripper clips to put in them.

But I have a load of wood I can cut down to a suitable size.

Anybody what sort of size I need to be cutting them down to?

Cheers,

Paul

Are you serious?
Cut them down to the size of 5 x .303 rounds I'd imagine. I'm not trying to be funny, I just don't see what you mean otherwise. If you don't have an inert .303 round as a template I'll post you one for free mate.

I don't, Chief. So I'd appreciate a template.
