    Lee .314 90 gr tumble lubed truncated cone over 2 grains of Red Dot in .32sw long brass shot with my new Ruger New model Single Six Bisley 6.5" barrel. Shot at 20 feet. I did use a small bag to steady my right arm, at my elbow. And yes I...

    FYI this is what 2 grains of Red Dot below a Lee .314 90 gr TC bullet looks like at the range. Shot at 20 feet. Right arm is resting on a small bag by my elbow. Second picture is 00 buckshot run through a .314 sizing die, given a single...

    2 grains of Red Dot, but those are low because I shoot them in the H&R 732 double action 2.5" barrel. I have no desire for more bang, working on less actually as long as I can maintain accuracy. I'm sure in the Ruger I could go to 3 but I...

    I've been playing with the .32sw long lately and having a great time. Started with a pair of H&R 2.5" double action revolvers. Then a Rolling Block takedown model in .32sw long. Now a Ruger New Model Single Six in.32H&R mag with 6.5" barrel and...

    Ruger New Model single six, Bisley in .32 H&R Mag. Which I will mostly shoot .32sw longs in unless I can not find any accuracy. Gun Broker, 454$ plus 27$ shipping and 20$ FFL fee. Puts me a touch over 500$ into it. Brand new with all...

    I tend to do most of my shooting slower than your target. The vast majority of my bullets are 50% clip on wheel weights, 50% soft lead, range scrap, etc. And 1-2% tin mostly for mold fill. Over 1400-1500 fps you will want gas checks, or a card...

    I'll be feeding it with .314's. I have both the Lee .314 90 gr TC, and I have also had good luck with sizing 00 buckshot through a .314 sizing die and loading those for plinking loads. I'll be checking throats this morning.

    Well it is here! .32 H&R mag new in box, still had some kind of plastic disk behind the cylinder. Trigger is awesome, sights look good. Be a day or two before I can shoot it. Grips are "almost" beefy for my hands. Rock solid grip,...

    I agree with 35whelen. My .45 colt is a single shot handi rifle. But 6.5 grains of Red Dot under a 230 gr cast truncated cone bullet did amazing things in mine. Easy on the shoulder, quiet, with a big thump on the far end. It was stacking...

    He has the patience of a saint. When working with flawed, dull, cracked, failing tools how easy is it for a workman to blame the tools? Yet Got forgives us, keeps urging us forward. Probably a good thing we do not hear God talking to Jesus.

    I'm with Richardb and use 2 grains of Red Dot in my pair of H&R revolvers. (732, 733, one nickle, one blued) My old RCBS uniflow does well enough with the small cylinder at 2 grains. But I do often make a custom measure for loads I load often....
