Lyle..

thats the one that has the unusual side mounted magazine on the right side correct.. If i remember my mil rifle stuff this was an old black powder round 30-40 Krag Jorgensen..

If its the one i think it is the magazine pivots from the front and you pull back the follower and drop in 5 of the big things.. Never heard it was a bad choice.. Know the story on that, i figured it was just replaced due to the 03 being a better rifle..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Yes, side mounted Magizine. Open the door an dump in 5 rounds. The factory ammo loads with the 180 gr. bullet. I reload with a 165 gr. bullet. I shot a jack rabbit at about 100 yrd's!!
with open sites. That damn bunny, expodded!!!! I was shoot'n speer 165 gr. BTHP, stuffed with Dupont 3031 IMR. Maby 39/40 grains. Its a slow shooter @ 24/2600 FPS.
I never load max. the bbls last longer.
Another subject. I have planted a seed in my wifes mind!!!! I said " Honey my deer rifle is well over a 100 years old,______________do you think some day I can mabe get a newer one???? (newer one means NEW!! but never tell a woman that) ; )
