    If cylinder gap is within factory specs: min. 0.003 pass/0.004 hold, max. 0.008 pass/0.009 hold you should not get any cylinder binding, even with black powder, if you use a correct lube for the powder type, 50-50 olive oil-beeswax or SPG for black...

    It's a Lee Challenger press. If you ever break a toggle, or you just want to upgrade, you can swap the old diecast ones for the new steel ones for less than $20.00. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    A Lee .319 round ball mold works too and is easy. These are a common size used for the .31 cal. cap & ball pocket revolvers and they weigh 48 grains each. You can load 2 of them in a .32 S&W Long case with 2 grains of Bullseye and they will then...
