    Yep, we shot the new model in cowboy matches with 32-20 and a .310 diameter lead bullet. Currently 32-20 brass and ammo is very hard to find for a reasonable amount.

    I believe few experience issues with the 336, 444 and 1895 because most ammo is loaded close to recommended OAL or Max OAL. Cowboy shooters especially .357 and 44 mag run shorter ammunition such as...

    Yep, lee 452-200 RF or Lyman 454190 ( 250 gr.). The Lyman bullet has so much neck tension that crimping on the ogive doesn’t allow the bullet to be pushed into the case when I have a full magazine...

    You can get 180 and 195 grain bullets for the 357. They would sort of run neck and neck with hotter loadings of 38/40. 32/20 is taking a step way backwards. Both 32/20 and 38/40 brass are hard to...
