    I have about a dozen krags. rifles from a converted 92 to a 1901. carbines 96,98 and a 99. I shot a point with the 99 using the 311299 loaded to 1800 fps. one shot went through end to end front to back.

    FLHTC replied to a thread something i did in Cast Boolits
    Yes I've done it many times. In spite of the smaller diameter of the 40 case, they shot surprisingly well.
