Default Pawn shop score 30-40 Krag

On the way home I decided to stop by a local pawn shop and to my surprise I found 5 boxes of 30-40 Krag at $20 a pop. Needless to say I cleaned them out . Now i have more food for my 1899 Krag carbine.

It is unfortunate that last year I paid $45 a box for this stuff at the Mira mar show and was really hard to find. Gotta get it where ever you can find it.

Save that brass for reloading and you'll be set for a very long time.

Even the brass is hard to come by, if I recall only one company currently makes it and they only release it once a year, and it gets sold out pretty quickly. I am sure he will reload the brass from the new boxes he just scored

I cast a 200 grain bullet on top of 16 gr of 2400 so my cost is cheaper than 22's making shooting my Krag a joy:-) I use the same bullet in my 03 sized to the same diameter. If I use a jacketed bullet cost definitely under a dollar a round.

Grafs sells 30-40 brass for a reasonable price. If you have a dealer account set up with them it's even cheaper.
