    Suggestions appreciated.

    $0.50/bullet for Horn 32005 is a bit rich for me, but they do shoot great.
    I've got a LEE C329-205-1R that I bought for my 8x58RD. It comes out around 217 grains with lube and GC.

    Too heavy for the 32 special?
    Kalifornia passes "feel good" legislation hand over fist, legislation that is looking for a problem to solve and affecting only law abiding persons.

    So, after 40 years of that nonsense, that's why I now live in Arizona.

    You’ll need to get closer to .323” diameter to start with, with that amount of sizing what will that do to the lube grooves will do nothing for accuracy . 1:16 ROT may not stabilize something that long but it might if pushed fast enough, I would expect some leading somewhere in the barrel. The RCBS 170 gr. mould for the .32 cal rifle barrels is very good or a reasonable facsimile of that mould would be a better choice. .32 Special is great cartridge when things are what it’s designed for.

    That does not seem to jibe with what I've read?
    The ones in the picture were sized .323 when lubed. They drop close that depending on alloy and you can see they are lightly sized.

    I bought this mold this year through Midway and mine drops bullets .325 or a tiny bit under that using CoWW and pure lead. I've shot it with some good success in a commercial 98 Mauser in 8mm Mauser. Just got a Miroku Winchester 94 in 32 Special so of course intend to try it in that also since the bullet was designed for that cartridge.
