For anyone wanting to shoot .32-20 regularly it truly is a reloading proposition.

In my area, if you can find it, Winchester ammo is above $50 for a box of 50.

More potent .32-20 ammo started kicking off back in the 1990s when people were rediscovering it as a good cartridge for handgun metallic silhouette competition.

I knew a number of shooters who used hot-loaded .32-20 in T/C Contenders.

I think the only guns I'd be willing to run the Ventura ammo through would be the Winchester Model 43 (and that would be iffy) or one of the new Marlin or Winchester/Browning lever actions.
