    Looking for a 30/40 Krag load usiing ww 231

    Looking for some 30/40 Krag loads using WW 231. Have bullets ranging from 115 to 220 gr.
    Loads are for a Remington RB #5

    Don't use 231 but do use Bullseye for mouse fart loads in 30/40 and 30/40AI, not sure how burn rates compare. Found 5 grains was a fun load with either 125 or 175 grain cast, lighter bullet was like shooting a 22rf. The AI is a Ruger No 3 and has a shorter throat and shot the 125 really well, the original Krag had a longer throat and preferred the heavier bullet.

    While there is no .30-40 data at this link

    http://www.gmdr.com/lever/lowveldata.htm

    There are plainbased cast loads provided for .30-30 and .30-'06. You could safely use the .30-30 data there as a guide. Be aware that the starting .30-'06 charges listed which don't exceed the max ones listed for the same powder in the .30-30 case are also OK, but using heavier ones you are on your own nickel.
