I need a red-dot sight on mine just to find the front post! When I find the front post I can shave with it.

How does the bolt feel on that bad boy. I bet it's smoooooooth.

You should try to find a speed loader for it.

If you watch this video of a shooting competition in Norway: http://www.nrk.no/nett-tv/klipp/279486/ There's some very cool old footage from the 1960's of a guy named Finn Amundsen just rocking the Krag (starts at 11:08, but everything leading up to it is fascinating).

Neat stuff indeed.

The bolt is wonderfully smooth, and I was surprised with just how soft shooting it is for a 30 cal rifle.

Although, the last round I fired was an interesting experience though... I'll mention it.

What happened to the "click to embiggen"? :-(

The Blogger app for Android sucks at life is what happened... they're just pictures of my phone's camera, so not all that exciting.

They are almost too smooth, it's hard to tell if you picked one up from the magazine unless you take a sec to look. And soft-shooting because big and nearly as long as a MosinNagantus with a slightly less boomy cartridge - but maybe the original 200-grain pill is more pushy.

Photo issue fixed.
