    Thank you! A suggestion I plan to heed is a modified gas plug set, which comes with a few different inserts -- the trick being to use the insert which still provides 100% functioning of action with the ammo being used. Several posts indicated...

    I could make available to you a factory 6.5x55 Norwegian Krag I purchased a few years back. Not D&T for scope, has a receiver sight instead. Dark walnut sporter stock, right handed- I'm sure this is not a sporterized military rifle, but a factory...

    Dang! A finer gentleman there will never be- He helped many of us keep our older firearms shooting by providing otherwise "obsolete" cases, expertly formed, at minimal cost. His word was his bond, never questioned. He set an excellent example...
