Re: Hand Loading Hornady 125 grn HPs

Speer Reloading Data has some nice 'reduced loads'. The one for 130 grain bullets should work well with 125 grain projectiles. There is also 'regular' data using IMR-3031. The 110 grain (.30 carbine projectile) reduced load has worked well for me in Krags, with single-loading. (The cartridge OAL is ...

Re: I bought 'The Krag Bayonet Book'

'Local Boy' - I have gone to some Gun Shows where there were more Krag Bayonets incorrectly 'stuffed' into picket-pin cases than there were bayonets in correct metal scabbards. FWIW - I'm sure the 'blarney' started at someplace like Bannerman's, where they had bayonets without scabbards, and a huge ...

Re: First Krag

'Marcuse99' - I would recommend a couple of 'starter' books to help build your Krag knowledge and increase you enjoyment for the 'NEW' Krag. Poyer's "The American Krag Rifle and Carbine" and reprints of the (1917) U.S. Ordnance Manual for the (Krag) U.S. Magazine Rife & Carbine are available at low ...

Re: First Krag

Marcuse99 - Welcome to the KCA Forum and congratulations on your CMP Krag purchase. Your U.S. Model 1898 Krag rifle, #431503, was assembled around January, 1903. The metal appears quite nice and remarkably clean and rust-free. I hope the bore is as nice! Your rear-sight is the model 1901 'Buffington...

Criterion Barrel on a U.S. Krag

He would be a popular guy on the KCA Forum!

Can you explain the process for the 'finish' chambering on the Criterion barrels? (I'm trying to get my head around that).

PM's seem to be funky!

Since the KCA Forum has come back into operation, I have received one PM. It was from Mooseman. I gave him a lengthy response to a GunBroker carbine question. I am not sure he received my response? I have since tried to send PM's to Local Boy and Mooseman. The PM's just seem to disappear, after I hi...

Criterion Barrel on a U.S. Krag

That all sounds like a 'beautiful relationship'.

BTW - Have you had your "Shop Guy" look into installing a Criterion Barrel on a U.S. Krag?

Re: 1894 norwegian krag in .22 cal

Jeff - That is a pretty awesome restoration. Did you do the actual barrel/receiver switch? What tools did you use?

It must have been interesting with the Left-Hand barrel thread.
