Re: Vithavuori for the 30-40

'Donki' - Welcome to the KCA Forum!

I don't have any experience with Vihtavuori powders. Hopefully, other members have used this maker's propellants and can provide data for good .30-40 loads.

(Attached are some pages with a few Hornady loads using N-140 and N-160. I have not used these loads):

Re: Load Suggestions

Some Rifles have tighter chambers than others. Cartridge case dimensions and wall thickness can vary, (different makers, different lots, different reloading practices). My point was that 'Charlesmep' needed to make sure that .311" diameter bullets were compatible with his rifle's chamber & cartridge...

Re: Webley MK VI

Captain Frank - Some observations: Webley revolvers, with cylinders altered for .45 A.C.P., (in 1/2 Moon-Clips), also function with the .45 Auto Rim cartridge. My Hornady Manual gives the rim thickness as .090" for the Auto Rim Cartridge. Approximately .080" to .090" is the likely dimension you need...

Re: Anyone Frequent Gunboards Forum?

Welcome back Culpeper. We figured you were lost and despondent in Africa, when the KCA Forum was down for so long. Steinmeyer went over to Africa, looking for you, in order to do an intervention. (I guess Africa is bigger than he thought or he got eaten by something)! Well, you're here .... get to w...

Re: Webley MK VI

'Capt. Frank' - I doubt if regular '1/2 Moon' or 'Full Moon' clips will work with .455 Webley brass, since the .455 Case lacks a pronounced extractor groove for a Moon-Clip to 'snap into'. To make .455 Webley cases work in the 'altered' cylinder, the solution would be, to sort of 'restore' the thick...

Re: Krag photo at Cracker Barrel

Interesting picture - Krag rifles got around!

I imagine the guy's collar insignia, buttons, and helmet emblem would be great clues as to context.

Re: Real ‘98 carbine?

It could be a real model 1898 carbine. (IMHO - The sellers photos and description are deceptive junk and reveal little). The serial number is within possible range, but, can't be read, with certainty. The stock has been heavily sanded and the butt-plate is extremely proud. Whether it has a correct (...
