    Hi Mr. Funk. I enjoy all your videos, keep them coming. I thought you would do better as I saw you shoot the course with the levergun. First work the bolt vigorously, you won't hurt the gun, equals no shortstrokes. second don't spit your thumb. Keep it on the same side as your fingers for faster/smoother bolt work. Practice, practice, practice. Yes, I have issues with o.p.o.t.c. I thought the whole idea of a rifle/carbine was to give the user a ballistic advantage over someone with a handgun at distance. Or to be ballisticly on par if that same person had a rifle. Oh well rant off, you do a very good job.

    I'm in your area (north central Ohio) and I have an original issue 30-40 Krag
    (military acceptance stamp 1903) that I could loan you. It shoots my Lee 150 RNFP, powder coated quite well out of a pitted barrel.

    PM me if this piques your interest.
