Fired about 2000 cast bullets threw this beast in the last year,and every once in awhile i find another super load! 11.0 grains of H4227 (84 lot) rcbs98 swc, win wspm, starline brass. 1.3-1.5 inch groups @ 25 yards!!!. 1180 f.p.s. average- 13 E.S. !!!!! sounds awesome dont it? Gun is a ruger single-six. Thought i ought to share this load. As always, this is my load,in my gun, yours might not handle it. Dont think its to high pressured though, cases about fall out of the gun,and as slow burning as this powder is,think it is pretty mild,so to speak. BTW, this is a compressed load. Cant beleave how good it shoots!! Ive climbed off the soap box now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Always glad to hear about another good .32 mag load. That RCBS bullet is well liked by a LOT of people.
I am still happy with the 120 gr GB mould and it seems to be performing well.
I'll know more when I have another 1000 or so thru my revolvers, TC 10" and TC Carbine.

Another vote for the RCBS 98-SWC boolit for 32 Mag here. It has become my go-to boolit for any of the 32 revolvers--Mag or S&W Long--and does all right in the 32-20, too. I do think the 32-20 is at its best with the 115-120 grainers, though--my revolvers in that caliber prefer the heavier slugs. The Magnums haven't done as well for me with the 115-120 grainers until a recent test with loads that kicked the boolit a little harder in the aspirations--once prompted past 900 FPS, they started to behave quite a bit better.
