Default Anyone reloading 30-40 krag for a Model 1895?

Since ALL reloading manuals that list 30-40Krag hold pressures down to the level the week 1898 Krag rifle can handle. And the MUCH stronger Winchester Model 1895 (afterall its also chambered in .405 and .30-06) I've been hoping to find some printed data on loads for my Model 1895 not limited to the old Krag levels.

I though especially when the Browning and Winchester 1895 repops came out in 30-40 that someone would work up some load data suited.

I only shoot Trail Boss and lead rounds though my Win 1895 (its over 112 yrs, old!) I have shot factory ammo... but that was loaded to Krag pressures as well..
...... I suffer from a very rare genetic defect that causes me to be sympathetic toward the International cause. There is no cure.
