5744 30 40 Krag 210 Gr

The .30 U.S. Army, or .30-40 Krag, was adopted in 1892 as America's first small bore military cartridge. It was later offered in the Remington-Lee bolt action, Remington Rolling Block, Winchester Model 95 lever action and the Highwall single shot rifles

The Krag military rifles and carbines are famed for their accuracy and smoothness of operation; but they are not noted for strength. Consequently, the .30-40 Krag cannot be loaded in these rifles to match the performance of even the .303 British, much less the .308 Winchester or .30-06.

The .30-40 Krag is well suited for shooting cast bullets and maintains a loyal following to this day. Loaded with either the 180- or 220-grain bullet, the .30-40 Krag is capable of taking any North American big game when in the hands of a skilled rifleman.

From 1973 until 1977 the Ruger No. 3 single shot was chambered for the .30-40 Krag thus ending a 37-year absence of this cartridge from the American market.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .30-40 Krag is 40,000 C.U.P.
