Re: Anybody hunt or shoot 30-40 Krag's ?
I have an unaltered 1896 Krag. I shoot IMR3031 and a Hornady 180gr RN. Great accuracy, mild recoil, easy on the throat.
I shot one deer with it, a doe, just because I wanted to hunt with the old gun. It did a SUPERB job on the deer.
I have to check log data for the charge weight, but I know I'm shooting 3031 and the Hornday 180gr RN.
Oh, and if you're reloading for a Krag, I STRONGLY recommend you partial full-length size. This will greatly increase your brass life.
