    Froggie; That sounds like a DANDY! I can hardly wait to see and shoot it! You do know that this calls for another "North/South .32 Skirmish" do you not? I will practice tirelessly in order to uphold the honor of the north:mrgreen: Dale53

    Define "Assisted suicide". Currently there are a lot of folks who have signed DNRs, and then went home on Hospice. At that point, the caregivers are just charged with keeping them comfortable. Part of that comfort is pain reduction through opiods,...

    Running the boolits though a larger diameter lube sizing die, doesn't make them larger, but it does allow you to lube the boolits without making them smaller. Unless, of course, you put a LOT of pressure on the handle - then the lead will obturate...

    Since Handloader109 won't beat his own drum, let me do it for him - He supplies just the type of mug that you're looking for, but with the added feature of having the Cast Boolits logo and you're handle, laser engraved on the side. There are other...

    Tim, Especially with 38-55, I would suggest that you slug the bore. I had a Winchester, of newer manufacture (1971) that had been rebored from 30-30 to 38-55, and the groove diameter was .381. I've heard of everything from .379 to .384, so you can...

    Mega; That looks to be a good test. Now, take the last load (that is a very useful speed for small game) and do a ten round test. Five with the powder against the primer and five against the bullet. If I had a .327, I would probably opt for...

    I used my Marlin lever action (late model) a LOT before I lost the vision in my right eye. I used Lyman’s 257420, cast of linotype, and sized to .258”. I used Hornady crimp on gas checks. My squirrel load was 4.0 grs. Of Unique. This was a SUPERB...

    That squares with my personal experience, too. I got off the .22 rimfire for field use when I was a young adult. I have never been disappointed with a proper small game load in my .32's and I used them a lot for that purpose. FWIW Dale53

    Mega; The Handloader - gentleman wrote in complaining about it and Brian Pierce agreed that he had seen it, also. 1/8” in that relatively small caliber CAN make a difference. Me, I will continue to be MORE than happy with my .32 S&W Long and .32...

    There have been complaints of the .327 when used with less than full loads. Velocity swings of more than 100 fps with accuracy problems. That would disqualify the .327 for me. On the other hand, I have had no such problem with either the .32 S&W...

    I am a BIG fan of .32’s for range and small game use. However, that, to me, means a 100 gr WC or SWC AT 850-950 fps. Like most hunters, I didn’t normally wear ear protection while hunting. I have ZERO desire of a one shot “eardrum shattering” 1500...

    Stop implying that I said things I didn't say. I told you that I could NOT ship it without an FFL for your dealer. You refused to provide it to me, so I dropped the pistol with a dealer who could get it to you. I could/should have made sure he got...

    As I said, you've remembered things wrong. I told you that I couldn't ship it without an FFL, and I would drop it with a dealer who could get it to you. He didn't get it shipped, but I didn't know that. I went today and made sure it happened.
