Keep looking Kraigwy, it will be worth it. I agree the .30-40 is an underrated round. The No. 3, .30-40 that I bought new some years ago has always been a great shooter. I have a couple Springfield Krags and they also shoot well, even with corroded bores, a common feature of Krags, but not as well as the No. 3. The Ruger is also very strong, allowing for a greater range of safe experimentation with handloads. I am afraid prices are going up, and I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Ruger to bring the No. 3 back to market.
