30-40 krag

My question would be why? Do you have a stockpile of 30-40 Krag? Not knocking the 30-40 Krag, I have 2 Krag-Jorgensen rifles, but doubt if I would ever invest in an Encore barrel in 30-40 Krag.

30-40

I got a 14" in a 30-40 Krag for the Contender also. The only time I shot it was to see what it would do at 100 with factory loads. Need to bench it to find out better, was a little surprised when I first touched it off. :)

30/40 Krag

Hello :D I have a 30/40 Krag in a Super 14" Contender also(this is what got my T/C "itis' started). I grew up shooting an old 1896 Krag and when I spotted a SSK re-chamber of a 30 Herrett in my gun shop I jumped on it. It's accurate and a real deer stopper! It really likes factory Rem. 180gr Core-loks. I handload for it and the 150gr bullet is a good deer round. I fits inbetween a 309JDJ and the 30/30 as far as ballistics goes. Like PORKYPINE said"stay within the limits of this round and you'll be OK"
