    It’s a 32 Long. It’s a RCBS 98 WC Mold. It’s a wad cutter bullet style. Seated to crimp groove as designed. (I have done same in 32 H&R as well as 327, but the OP of this thread asked for 32 long wadcutter load information) CW

    What do your throats measure? Even if, perfectly sized you may never see single hole accuracy. Not to be harsh, but are YOU able to shoot single hole accuracy? I’m a 35+ year Bullseye shooter who has held Master Classifications and I cannot. ...

    Powder coating your cast will remove MUCH of the hardness worries. I cast most HG stuff to 8-12 BHN and Rifle 12-18 BHN. Huge asset with powder is no hand guns “need” gas checks to detour leading anymore. They are still a improvement to the...
