Took my 1898 .30-40 Krag out today and found it really likes Winchester 180 grain White label ammo. The groups out of the old barrel were pretty good at 100 yards from the bench.

Good shooting!
I shoot mine with cast bullet handloads and get really good results. I wish my eyes were 25 years younger as well. :roll:

Excellent ... I've been hoarding some Krag ammo and intend to give one of my Krags a try one of these days.
