nebrhogger at Hotmail dot com if you want to try that. SW

Here are the pics. Seems a shame to D&T a Krag, but it was common practice back in the day. Folks often didn't have the $ for more than one gun so they made the most of what they had. SW

I have 2 Krags, one a cut-down to carbine length and one full length. Do your best to grab cases from where ever you can get them. They are getting scarce. I luckily bought several hundred and loaded them. Sadly some develop neck cracks upon firing and thusly have to be destroyed. Since they are loaded, can't anneal them.
Hopefully you reload, or at least do for this cartridge, otherwise you will have very limited exposure to new rounds. Hopefully PPU will have them available.

I had several 1909 FA 30 USG rounds I found in a box of gun show junk. Never shot them, but they all had spontaneous split necks just laying in the box.

I might have some new brass... I'll look around for it. SW

i shot all of mine when i had them , i once had quite a few rounds , some went with the rifles , some went as noted above with split necks etc, i will look to see what if any i might still have stashed away but that may take a few days of digging so bear with me , lots of places to look

my 92/96 [96 i once had is missing from this photo] and 98 -
