    Reloader 7 in a.32-20?

    Has anyone tried RL7 in a.32-20 rifle? My pet load is with unique but I have data for RL7 as well as the powder. Going by the book it seems to be in the same pressure and velocity range as unique but is it as accurate?

    I have used both 4198 and RL7 in the .32-20 both in an original 1873 Winchester and in a Savage 23 boltgun and a nominal case full without compression works fine.
