    Nothing spectacular, nuisance animals that were tearing stuff up at the cabin where I lived in big woods at the time, so I used the gun I had with me, which is usually the case. Moose in rut repeatedly charging the Jeep and bear later trying to...

    Shoots well, feeds well, is accurate. Let the results on the rabbit dictate wether you harden the alloy or slow it down. Go shoot some rabbits.

    Please do. Last pressure testing I did in .32 ACP was back in 1980s, all radial copper procedure, and while CIP permits higher pressure the measurements are all piezoelectric and their statistical conventions are much different.

    Soft solid flatnosed. Caliber that starts with a "4" throwing around a half-ounce of lead, or more, having a meplat larger than 60% of bullet diameter, at subsonic velocity around 900-1000 fps from a 5-1/2" barrel. A classic, simple solution still...

    Not sure where you got the 4 grain Herco load or if it was a typo... Sounds too much. I wouldn't exceed 3 grains with the 77-grain bullet until you've actually chronographed it and examined fired cases. The 3 grain AutoComp load is very good...

    The CZ sounds like a nice collectible. The Ortgies should handle the 77-grain bullets OK.

    Also, with the Ortgies there is no reliable source of replacement heavy-duty springs or spare parts if you break anything. I use the heavy .32 ACP loads only in pistols where I can substitute a heavy-duty 16-pound recoil spring for the standard...

    No need to patch .357 bullets. Most common .38 molds cast oversized anyway. Soft HBWC bullets slug-up well. Accurate also has a variety of molds optimized especially for the .38 S&W, .380 Rimmed, the Mk2, .380-200, etc. For most common .38 S&W...

    AGC is NOT a requirement if your using a properly powder coated bullet. Good point on feeding. Mine do feed fine but I have read many times others do not. Lee’s excellent 158-358 is a WFN and a good looking bullet properly alloyed would expand &...

    I modified an RCBS set of handles for My OLD 2cav Lachmiller molds. I also modified a Lee set last year. I think I prefer RCBS handles over all others.

    Of course there are times when you do catch a deal. Sold my last H&G about 10yrs ago. It was a 10cav #50 with handles. Bought it for $40 at a gun show in 1979. Just hadn't cast a 38 wadcutter in the 20yrs before that. Made $100. And some folks...

    If you have your Marlin barrel re-throated to have a cylindrical ball seat of .432" diameter ahead of the case mouth for a distance of about 0.060-0.080," then reduce the angle of the origin of rifling to a six degree included angle, you will easily...
