    This is what my first Krag ‘carbine’ evolved into. Kraghaus scope mount, nikon EER scope, 19 inch bbl, sporter stock, butt pad cheek rest and ammo band.

    I'm getting to the point in life where I'm thinking a lot about paring down my collections. The .30-06s and the .300 Win Mag will all go, but at least one of the Krags will stay.

    The one in my avatar is amongst the favorites in my collection...... Rings steel at 100yds with boring ease.

    In military rifles I don't believe there is one better suited to cast bullets than the Krag. Slick, smooth action, rimmed case that doesn't get driven ahead in the chamber buy the firing pin so it changes the head to shoulder length. Easy on the eye and the shoulder. What's not to like.

    What's not to like? The price they are selling for. I should have bought one 30 years ago.

    Interesting thread. I don't have a Krag rifle but I do have a Browning/Miroku 1895 in .30-40. I've not reloaded for it yet. I think I only bought it for it's uniqueness.

    I don't hunt so one of these days one of my sons will either hunt with it or it will go down the road. Or, it could be a grandson that will hunt with it. Won't matter to me either way by then.

    my son and i have about 14-15 deer killed with the krag. my son has the longest shot with a cast boolit, 173 yards-laser range finder thingy. the first year i took it out(9 - 10 years ago), i got a doe that was measured at 93 yards. boom, thwap, dead deer. i and my son can say that we have never tracked deer after the shot. i am waiting for the deer to run, jog or walk after the shot, but they aren't cooperating!!!! i use a 165gr ranch dog(.311") with 25.5gr of h4198 going 1926fps.

    i've seen a old 1895 winchester with a peep sight in 30-40 krag(30 army) that i just luv, but can't afford.

    peep sight pictures

    I have (2) Krags, a 1900 & a 1901. I think they are one of the finest shooting rifles out there. As the above stated, they love cast!! Lyman 311467 over 20 gr of IMR4227 shoots great!!
