to find a hunting load. Looking in my Lyman Load Manual The suggested loads for Krag look weak. My goal is 200gr with gas check at 1850 to 2000fps. I want a deer hunting load. I have been casting bullets for pistol and want to make the jump to rifle. I also shoot 3006 and 308 win and 303 Brit.
I have a Enfield Action 30/40 for testing. This gives me a little more margin for safety as the action is slightly stronger than Krag action. Using rifle powder is where I want to go. I've already been the reduced pistol powder cast load in 303. Going to the 50yd line to shoot 303 is not for me.
