30-40 brass substitution

Hi;
due to a shortage of 30-40 brass, is it technically possible to reform a functional 30-40 case from 7X57R brass?
I know, It would be better with 303 but a friend gave me a big package of 7X57R.
Regards

Re: Vithavuori for the 30-40

gentlemen,
I will start reloading 30-40 Krag ammo with S&B 180 gr FP bullets, an RP brass.
The Hornady #3075 RN bullets are expensive and hard to find here in France.
What is your brass length ?
Regards

Re: Drama Free Day at the Range

Very nice!
Is the leather stock extension destined to reduce the recoil or are you too tall? :D

Sir,
Keep the old RWS primers as part of your collection!
Don't use them :shock:

Has anyone ever looked at the Lee Enfield .22 cal tube insert device? Could that be made to fit a Krag with the rimmed 30-40 chamber, similar to the .303 rim.

Just spit ball'in.

And Yes, I have several .22 training rifles. US and Foreign models.
sorry to ask, what is this target?
