    It is hard to beat a 22 rimfire for a first hunting rifle. Airguns are great for off season practice in the basement or garage with the kids. This is why I answered the Poll, "It Depends" That was a great question. Thanks for posting.

    These are ten-shot, fifty yard groups fired within soft, 1:30 tin-lead, plainbased bullets in a Marlin 1894S Microgroove .44-40 rifle with open sights. These are not subsonic loads, but full charges, about 1200 fps.

    Probably... But maybe not... If you already have the dies, try them and you might get lucky. Depends on whose .32 S&W dies you have and whether they are for .32 S&W or S&W LONG, there is a difference.

    My Army & Navy was originally a .255 but had a badly pitted bore. John Taylor relined and rechambered it to .32 S&W Long and Lucas Geiger did the exterior restoration after the relining was done.
