Is camping at the range acceptable?

A little Tutorial about Krags: 

Krags are OAL sensitive.  The greatest mistake is the use of too light, too short bullets.  OAL should always be greater than 2.80.  Fortunately the long case neck gives great flexibility in bullet usage, but no real need to go below 170 grains.  Proper length will give slick feeding, and allow the cases to align naturally in the magazine. 



+1 on that. The only time I ever had a problem with "rim lock" with my Krag was when I tried to use some 165gr flat point 30-30 cast bullets. Seated to the crimp groove. Had to very carefully load those to make sure the rims stayed lined up right. Maybe if I had seated them out a little more....

Being to cheap to not try and use them, I tried them in my '03. Didn't feed well there either.

The Darksider's Den / Re: Using B.P. In Trapdoor— picture added

This is the target I shot at 100 yards. I think I will stick with the 405 grain bullet in back of the 55gr of O.E. As the height seems about right as i was holding center of bull. If I keep working with the different elements I should get a tighter group. How are those Buffington sights for those that have used them?

That's a beauty!  I have M1866 and M1868.  The M1868 I shoot quite a bit. I'm partial to the .50-7s :-)

One day I hope to get to shoot one of the 50-70 Trapdoors —- seems like great fun.  I was at the museum in Cody and saw Buffalo Bills 50-70– hard to imagine how many times it must have been shot to get in that ragged out condition.

BROW / Re: #1 Remington Sporting rifle - .44-77

My guess is it will do great with a good compressed load , it would be interesting to know the velocity difference between the shorter barrel and say a 30 " . My guess it is not that much . Sight radius would be more noticeable than the velocity . The tang sight is a big plus in that regard . Awesome old piece Amigo .,,,DT

Howdy Jeeper.
With Ubertis, only round barrel carbines come blue or CC.  The various forms of rifle are all CC, just fyi.  Good luck.
