Do love the Krag. You know every time an Enfield is discussed, everyone comments on how it has such a smooth bolt action (Which is true) but I think the Krag's action is much more smoother. They are fun and easy to load also.Well, my M1898 Krag rifle likes cast bullets. Easily found an accurate load using 303 British cast bullets. Not chronographed, but estimate 200 gr at 16xx fps. As I shot test loads I also adjusted the rear sight so it was being sighted in at the same time. I’m only neck sizing using a Lee 7.5 Swiss collet die, so no case lube is needed.
This will give an idea of the accuracy...4 shots touching at 30 yd with a 5th out. I’m sure it’s my vision with sights designed for a young soldier. Today at our 35yd plinking range, I couldn’t miss. Such a s-m-o-o-t-h action on a Krag.
