There were some 240 grain lead bullets at Sportsmen’s in Reno last week, if you reload. Those and some components would get you there. Heck, you might be able to use black powder in that old museum piece...

I tried the Black powder and with primers now a days couldn't get a good mix, and I don't want to blow this rifle up to good of shape... That's why I will stick with Cowboy Loads just a great Carbine to shoot.

If you find someone to load them for you, or you decide to do it yourself, keep the pressures to the lower end. That bolt only has one locking lug but you probably knew that already. If I remember right, you can shoot the 110 grain .30 cal plinkers out of that gun loaded with some 3031 or like powder pretty cheaply and not use a lot of powder. Primers are the hard part to come by right now.
