    Here’s another picture of two of my 32s, both custom builds. First, on the right, I had Project 616 built in 327 Fed Mag, all stainless based on a ND Model 66. Then I decided to “go old school” and recreate a Model 16-3 the same way the factory...

    I agree wholeheartedly, MM. My dream rifle would be a Ruger #3 rebarreled and chambered in 327 Fed Mag. I’m also considering an original low wall action that Ken Hurst engraved for me many years ago… I’d be afraid to run 327 Fed Mag in it, but it...

    Ghosthawk, although at this point I only have handguns in any of the 32 calibers, I’m an old ASSRA member and lover of single shots, so I’d love to see pix of that roller in 32 S&W. Did you use the little 32 rimfire as a starting point? Anybody...

    Nueces, I would be interested in swapping for (or buying) either or both of those barrels. I’ll attach pix of my two 32 projects built on K frames, the 616 and an homage Model 16-3 recreation. On the left is my Faux 16-3 and on the right my three...

    My 327 project , aka “Project 616” was the subject of a year long thread on the S&W Forum, but I’ll give you the Cliff’s Notes version. I bought a Model 617 (22 LR) barrel and cylinder from Brownell’s and Numrich respectively. I sent the barrel to...

    Every time a thread opens up about 32s, whether loading, different models, or any other variation on the theme, there seems to be a great deal of interest. When you go to gun shows or stores, ammo available or even guns themselves command a premium...

    We're getting pretty far adrift from the original topic of this thread. Perhaps someone would like to begin a thread on the 32 H&R, its hopes, strengths, shortcomings, etc. I will say to those who think of the factory 32 H&R as a big improvement...

    One thing to consider as far as reloads for 32 S&W Long are concerned is that factory loads and even reloading manual recommendations for this caliber must allow for the plethora of revolvers chambered for it over the last century and a quarter....

    A friend of mine gave me his favorite recipe for 32 H&R and a 105 HPGC. Somehow I got confused and thought he was suggesting it for a 32 S&W Long. Since it was hot for the H&R (according to the “book” at least) those 50 rounds were pretty rowdy in...

    Not to butt in on friend Kevin, but in my PPC days at least, the Federal and Remington target loads for 38 Special were lead wad cutters, usually swaged HBWCs and were referred to as Mid Range Wad Cutters. We reloaded for them with 148 gr HBWCs...

    AlanF, Have you looked at the Henry catalog? They seem to be one of the few (only) companies still making a 32-anything rifle or carbine currently. Other folks are looking for anything used (don’t ask me how I know!) Froggie

    While I have acquired over the years a trio of tiny S&Ws, a 32 S&WL I frame snub, a 38 S&W Terrier (also an I frame) and a "Baby" Chiefs Special in 38 Spl, I much prefer my adjustable sighted Models 60-4 and 631. Adjustablity is a positive, but...

    That’s why this thread was started. Herters presses use one of two proprietary shell holders, one of which is threaded and the other, more common of which has a deeper, heavier shoulder that goes into the press. Numbers for some calibers are...
