Have no measurement tools here.  Anyone mic their cyl throats?  Thinking 'bout trying .451"+ balls.  Thanks.

I use an original Ideal reloading tool.  See link to ebay.  I will admit I did not pay these prices back in early 90's.

editted on 5/30/16.  Just looked closely at the first link I posted and noticed that the bullet mold had been drilled out, so I deleted that one.

Be careful what you watch on YouTube.
The bolt arm should fall off the front of the cam and not the side of the cam (as one guy espouses in YouTube vids.) Sliding off the side will only get worse for the cam, bolt arm or both.

The Jerry Kuhnhausen book (The Colt Single Action Revolvers a shop manual Vols 1&2). explains it very well.

Pettifogger is right about the Italian offerings having an integral cam. They can be removed and the hammer drilled for a conventional cam if needed. It's best not to "adjust" the cam except for the height. I adjust that on all my customers revolvers.

Lots can be done to restore a "too soon " bolt drop  if it's not too early and you understand the procedure.

I remember back 30+ years ago, when I was doing this the first time, I had trouble seating my 255g custom 20-1 bullets to an over-all length of 1.6". Compressing 40g of GOEX, even in those balloon head cases I had, took so much pressure it distorted the nose of the soft bullets. I ended up talking a machinist/gunsmith friend into shaping a seating stem to exactly fit my bullet's profile. It allowed me to load the 40g duplicates I was trying to create and later what became my standard load of 36g of FFFg in modern brass without distorting my soft lead slugs. Wish I still had all that stuff. (smile)

$700 in todays market for an uncut M1898 with a decent barrel is a Very Good Price.  I'd get it.

I have some of those, too. I do have a shellholder that will fit them, but it's different than the one I use for my other .45 cases. They tend to "pop" through the shellholder when priming on the press. I just put them away and use modern ones.

      I'm looking at a Krag for a friend of mine who's looking to get involved with us.  I can probably get this one for around $700.  It's got a pretty nice bore and it's complete.  It's been so long since I bought a Krag I'm not up on the prices.  (Mine cost me $275 back in the day, and it's much nicer than this one.)  Let me know what you think.

By the way, I'm pretty certain it's a local VFW gun.  That aluminum tag around the barrel has a "13" on it.
