    zymguy; That load is WAY over the max according to Hodgdon's web site. Remember, this revolver is chambered for .32 H&R Magnum and will also be used with .32 S&W Longs. Folks, let's be safe! FWIW Dale53

    GhostHawk; That Ruger Bisley looks like a DANDY! I predict a GOOD shooter if you are able to match the cylinder throats with your cast bullets. I had a Single Six .32 H&R with 4 5/8” barrel and it was an excellent performer with both .313” and...

    Froggie; That sounds like a DANDY! I can hardly wait to see and shoot it! You do know that this calls for another "North/South .32 Skirmish" do you not? I will practice tirelessly in order to uphold the honor of the north:mrgreen: Dale53

    Mega; That looks to be a good test. Now, take the last load (that is a very useful speed for small game) and do a ten round test. Five with the powder against the primer and five against the bullet. If I had a .327, I would probably opt for...

    I used my Marlin lever action (late model) a LOT before I lost the vision in my right eye. I used Lyman’s 257420, cast of linotype, and sized to .258”. I used Hornady crimp on gas checks. My squirrel load was 4.0 grs. Of Unique. This was a SUPERB...

    That squares with my personal experience, too. I got off the .22 rimfire for field use when I was a young adult. I have never been disappointed with a proper small game load in my .32's and I used them a lot for that purpose. FWIW Dale53

    Brian Pearce's article in the Handloader #312 on page 14 in "Bullets and Brass" covers the problems with the .327 wide velocity swings. FWIW Dale53

    Mega; The Handloader - gentleman wrote in complaining about it and Brian Pierce agreed that he had seen it, also. 1/8” in that relatively small caliber CAN make a difference. Me, I will continue to be MORE than happy with my .32 S&W Long and .32...
