    I'm sorry to hear about your Mom. I had to do the same thing with mine. You did the right thing. It's also a good thing to go through the house and see if there are other hazardous or valuable things which should probably be removed for safe...

    .32 ACP is not rimless, but semi-rimmed. But firing the ACP in .32 revolvers is not a good idea for numerous reasons explained in my earlier post #593

    Insufficient outside deburr of the case mouth, combined with excessive crimp. There is no need whatever for that heavy a crimp, even in a tubular magazine rifle. Back it off!

    In my S&W Model 29-2 I use Accurate 43-230G which shoots to the sights bottomed out with any charge, mostly 7.2 grains of Bullseye, but also fine with heavier loads of 22 grs. of Alliant #2400 or 24grs. of IMR4227.

    IF you want a round which you can buy factory ammo for, the .44-40 has advantages. My experience with the .38-40 in vintage revolvers was that chamber dimensions varied widely and caused problems. I had John Taylor do two .44-40 Ruger revolver...

    If you are just using the rifle for range shooting, consider the 10x25mm. John Taylor has the chambering and die reamers and can do your rifle and a matching revolver in the same caliber. Cases are necked down .44 Russian. The .44 Russian...

    If the bullet will drop freely through the barrel and out the choke of its own weight, you can shoot it. BUT if a hard cast bullet will not go through the choke of the shotgun barrel, you will probably bulge the barrel and may split the muzzle so...

    Outpost75 replied to a thread flat or bevel base. in Cast Boolits
    In 9mm, if the seating depth of the bullet will be deeper than factory FMJ, a bevel base reduces the tendency for the bullet base to impinge against the internal body wall taper of the case, which will cause a bulge that impedes chambering. A bevel...

    I measured the recoil spring load and it is the same as in the Beretta .380 ACP Model 84, a full 10 kg! (22 lbs.). Of course that stuff is NOT intended for steady diet, but for carry. I feed these also to my SIG P230 in 7.65mm, and my Colt M1903...

    Outpost75 replied to a thread lead/tin in Cast Boolits
    Even a very small percentage of tin will GREATLY improve casting quality. As little as 1% will make a BIG difference. I would try 1% before adding more. Using a professional-grade, non-corrosive flux as is used in wave-soldering or linotype...

    Using .40 S&W DATA to load the 10mm case is safe, but you need to ensure that your pistol will function reliably. In the past when I assembled such a load, I had good results using a 200-grain bullet and 5 grains of Bullseye. A 180-grainer...

    Rifling bore and groove dimensions of .32 Long Colt are altogether too tight to rechamber the cylinder for .32 S&W Long or Colt New Police, you'd be cramming a .314 bullet down a .300" groove diameter barrel and would likely split the very thin...

    You got a great deal on the 13-2, even if it needs a little TLC from heavy duty use. They are great guns, easy to work on and parts readily available. They go around here for $450-600 depending upon condition. The Model 34 Kit Guns go sky high.
