    .30-40 Krag vs .303 British.

    First rifle I hunted with was a 30-40 Krag. Power about the same as the.303 British.

      I really have no experience with either of those, but I know a man who will swear by the .303 as a excellent round.

        Both the .30-40 and the .303 British are excellent deer cartridges; however, I'm considering this from a handloader's perspective, and there are many more bullet options for the .30-40.
        I owned a .303 British, and I've worked with a Ruger #3 in .30-40. The Ruger #3 (since discontinued) was relatively light and recoiled briskly, but it was a pleasure to reload that cartridge.

          Like most everyone else, I buy a scope to feel a need. Only a few times have I taken advantage of a sale.
