AND NOW DANISH

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

On advice from members of the Krag Facebook site I have bought 200 8 x 56 RS Boxer cases - Mannlicher - which fit the rifle and should fireform easily.
Before I bought the cases I bought a collectors round to make sure it would fit and eject which it does.

When I checked the case stamping this is what I have.

Powder load is a bit sharp, will drop it to 43 grains I think although I need to fire off the rest of the first load - 40 rounds!

Good shooting. Looks like the old gun and the new made bullets work fine.
