Re: Gunsmith in SE PA
Can you be any more descriptive in what happens to the brass when the rifle is fired? Pics of fired brass maybe?
Krags are notorious for having "liberal" chambers at times, and reloading with care to minimally resize the brass can help solve modest headspace/shoulder issues, within reason.
My 1896 blows out the shoulders of fired brass to almost look like they've been "Ackley Improved", lol. It's never split a case head or neck, but I also size my brass to remove excess space between the shoulder of the case and the chamber.
Just curious. Might be able to get you on track here without the intervention of a smith.
