Mueller design single shot's

Well I finally broke down and bought a copy of the book for my next project. For now I am thinking of chambering in 30-40 krag. Is there anybody out there that has completed one of these? got pictures? Is there anything I should be aware of in the design?

Re: annealing

Mauser Bolt Face

I was truing up the bolt face on a Mauser action and found it to be extremely hard. So hard that the carbide cutter wouldn't touch it. So I thought I would ask if anyone else has run into this or if this should be a concern as the last couple I have done I had no problem cutting.
