    Thank again.
    Now shoot another 50,000 of yhose through it and it will probably be smoother.
    Spell check doesn't work in Chrome, so if something is spelled wrong, it's just a typo that I missed.

    I’m glad you found that 319289 bullet… it shoots great for me in several guns. I’m surprised though at your weight. Mine runs about 185 grains with 25-1 lead-tin alloy.

    Green Frog, You are a sharpe eyed frog. Your are correct the bullet 319289, dies cast 185 grains. I special ordered this mold from Lyman many years ago for an other rifle in 32-40. This was just before they got rid of there old cherries. It is interesting they did this just in time for the black powder shooting to get popular. I never understood why they did this as these cherries could not have taken up much space. I count myself very luckily to have gotten this mold.

    Is that a Rem-32-40 or Win 32-40? I think there will slight differences. Shoot it and see. I have several rifles with pits, rotten spots, pot holes and just plain sewer pipe or worse. All have been made to shoot well with some trial and trial again. I like soft, over sized, gas checked bullets. let us know
