Maybe the idea that a single lug might not be enough didn't occur to Army ordnance, but it occurred to Krag and Jorgensen, since the Danish 1889 rifle fires a round almost equal in pressure to the German 8x57JS and both lugs bear, as do the lugs on the later Norwegian Krag. One report says that Jorgensen tried to get the U.S. to go that route and they refused, but it doesn't say why.
