Hi all. I have a couple of questions regarding my new old krag. I've posted several pictures for your interest and to aid in your answers. This is my great grandfathers rifle whom I never met. My grandfather (who is still alive) and his father both bought krags at the same time sometime in the 40's. When My great grandfather died, my grandfather sold his fathers rifle to his dear friend and neighbor. Well recently the grapevine informed me that his friend needed a little cash and was selling this rifle. I was not even aware of this story of the rifles until I was informed of it for sale. I didn't even hesitate. I ran over the next day and bought it. So, I took it out shooting, and absolutely love it. I have a large collection of high end rifles, and this might be my favorite among them. However, at 87 yards I was shooting approximately 17" high. I have found as much information online as I think I can find. In fact there was a similar concern expressed on this forum that I read through, but my situation is a little more extreme. Maybe I have the wrong front blade? I know bullit ballistics may be a factor. I'm using 180gr vs the original 220gr. My grandfather told me today his rifle doesn't shoot high with 180gr so I don't know. My other question is I would like to cast the original bullit 220gr RN, but the closest thing I can find is 210 gr. Would anyone know where I can find a 220 mold? I don't want to get into casting for this rifle though unless I know those bullits will hit what I intend. On a side not that I find interesting, is my grandfather told me that back in the 40's 50s and 60s ammo was very hard to come by so he had an adaptor to load and fire 32 acp as an alternate round. He said it was accurate out to about 100 ft.
