    32-40 loads

    Have a Marlin 93 late model made in 1924, round barrel in 32-40. Have a nickel plated Marlin 32-40 marked loading tool that has a single cavity bullet mould. There are no dies with the tool and I use regular loading dies. Whats a good combination for a cast bullet load?
    Way back in 1920, the great H.L. Mencken offered the following forecast for the future of the presidency:

    ďAs democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.Ē

    Behold the proof: Barack Obama.

    There are three molds I use in my Marlin Model 1893 in 32-40 !

    My rifle is circa 1906 also !

    I first used the RCBS 32-170GC mold . later I picked up a Lyman 321297 and not to very long ago (meaning about 4 months) I got one of the Ranch Dog test molds 323-170GC .

    I use XMP5744 with all three of these bullets . And have used the RCBS bullet with 15 grains XMP5744 to take a deer before .

    With all three of the above molds I started with 13 grains of XMP5744 and worked my way up to about 17 or 18 grains . I also use the CCI200 primer for all of my 32-40 loads.
