Re: ERROR IN LYMAN 50th RELOADING MANUAL FOR KRAG

Note also that the Hogdon website for IMR4895 and 180g bullet shows a max load of 35.5 but no starting load is listed.

Re: Danish Krag Carbine Scout rig

Very nice Scout Rifle. Always cool when you can mount a scope on a Milsurp without spoiling its exterior originality.  What caliber is it?

Re: 1896 Carbine Questions

Apparently there is both an early and late version of the magazine cutoff for the Model 1896.  Does anyone know which version will fit my gun?  Thanks

Re: 1896 Carbine Questions

Thanks for the added comments.  Took a good look and there is no evidence of a crack in the bolt. Plan to look into adding the missing cutoff.

Re: 1896 Carbine Questions
