Hi all I just wanted to show off my 1895 miroku in 30-40 krag, the banded front sight, sling swivel, pad and checkering were done by Dennis Olson and the bolt mounted aperture sight was done by Andy Larsson of Skinner Sights, has anyone here hunted with 30-40? This one really likes 180gr!!!

The 30-40 in a Krag Jorgeson was my first deer rifle and it served me well for several years. Slickest bolt action ever made. IMO

Nicely done. The Winchester pad, peep, and barrel mounted sling stud are nice touches.
Now go shoot some deer, hogs, and such to break it in.

Then look for an 1895 .405 WCF to raise your game a bit by shooting some big nasty stuff!

That's amazing. It's a desired rifle of mine.

Nice.
My grandfather had one of those 30-40 Krag. When he died, I was hoping I could get it, but my uncle got the claim on it.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
