Re: Anybody hunt or shoot 30-40 Krag's ?
Killed my first deer with my Dad's (and it was his dad's) Krag. Dad still has it. My brother has one too. I load for them. But, I honestly cannot tell you what the load is. I generally toss a moderate charge of (I'm thinking) IMR-4064 in under a 180 gr. SGK or Winchester Silvertip. Pretty much, anything shoots well in a Krag with a shiny bore. And no use to push any limits. The Springfield is not a particularly strong action. If you need more power, there's always the .308, .30-06 or .300 Mags.
