    I have a 4" flat latch model 31 that seems to be sighted at 50 feet. It groups well at 25 yards just about 8" high. The 31-1 seems to be sighted for 25 yards. I love the 4" one but I am still trying to get it to shoot to sights.

    6.5 Dutch Mannlicher might be a good case to emulate. Its the 303 Case necked down to 6.5mm/ Its a dead cartridge case since WWII also so load data might be scarce although both chamberings -- 6.5 Krag and 6.5 Dutch were rated for 40k psi loads...

    The brass had been loaded with full loads a bunch. Some was starting to split. Inconsistent boolit pull.

    Does anybody have any information on wildcatting a .30-40 Krag to 6.5mm? More precisely, the .30-40 Krag case, not a .30-40 Krag rifle.

    Hi RS, I'm wondering if it's your lube giving you those crusties? As long as I used beeswax/olive oil I was golden but the use of my version of the tried & true Felix lube left one melluva hess. With 777, I got the crud no matter what I used.

    Never say "Never", and never say "Always" when it comes to S&W Model and caliber alignments. Ya gotta have a "Rosetta Stone" to figure out the intricacies and subtleties, and mine has been The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson by Supica and Nahas.
