Tom,
The exact same problem occurrs.
When I logon,my name is accepted,and is displayed on the screen.
But,when I reply to a post,the screen displays me as a "guest".
My subsequent input is answered with the same "another person has that name"display.

[glb]Greetings:[/glb]

  - [hr] -

A gun dealer near me has an 1898 Springfield Krag rifle No. 369246, "JLR" stock cartouche, asking $629, but he is willing to swop and dicker.  The rifle in my non-expert opinion is neither "bad" nor "good".  The rear bolt (safety?) is delaminating but can be replaced. There is general less worse surface corrossion all over the outside; it is not red rust correction.  It's seeming corrossion, is like long smashed strands of blue rice. Is this rifle worth collecting at all?  If so, is the price too high?

I have an 1898 Krag rifle that I have been shooting.  I am concerned at how quickly the barrell heats up.  After only about 10 rounds it is quite hot  and a few more makes it too hot to touch.  Is this normal or is it the loads that I am using?  I am shooting Sierra 168 grain boat tail hollow points with 44 grains of IMR 4831.  I am going to switch to 220 round nose bullets but I have just now found a souce for them.

I guess I'll stop worrying about it but any soldier that used one in a hot firefight must have worn asbestos gloves.
