Have you slugged your barrel yet?

I couldn't tell you the mold number off the top of my head (getting too many molds to remember them all), but for my 32 Win Sp I'm using a 175gr Lyman plain base mold for a 32-40 that dropped a .319 before I polished it out to drop a .321. With 7gr. of Red Dot, my old .32 loves that bullet like a woman loves chocolate.

Hope that wasn't a sexist suppository remark. I'm looking at the rcbs 175 .321 gas check and maybe a lovern style plain base. what does your red dot load scoot the bullet at? 7 grs. sounds like a good economical load.

Thanks, guys! I'd almost forgotten the 94 in .32 Win Spl growing older in a used gun rack near here. Thanks a lot!

Go for it, the Cabela's in Cowtown had several shooters from a private collection. One even had receiver sights. If I cruise through there in a haggling mood this weekend I may take a hard look @ it. It's an intriguing caliber in a great gun, just not in a buying mood these days.

Gun was gone, Salvadore. Hope you got it. Found a new Marlin 336C in 35 Rem on the used gun rack for a good price, probably get more use out of it anyway.

Now that's funny tex, I just finished posting about your 30-30 when I noted a new post on the 32 spec. Nope wasn't me, but I got one coming next week. Was the 35 remington one of those new fangled rimless cartridges?

Yep, shares a birthday with the .30-06. Pretty modern by my standards. Reckon It'll catch on?

32 Win Spl is one of my all time favorite cartridges, preferred over the 30-30. The RCBS bullet is a good'un.

Which Williams sight? I have one of their receiver sights on a 94 but may go with a tang sight next time. I think they make one. I have two of their products and like both very well.
Have any bullets cast yet?

Depends on what you are going to use it for. For big game (deer size), the bullet you mention over a load of Reloader 7 is a good one. However, if you are looking for a plinking or small game load, the ultra light loads and plain base bullet designs suggested in previous posts might be better.

i am gonna use it to punch holes in paper and maybe an occasional jack rabbit. I want to shoot it around 1500 to 1800fps, and depending on the bore size of my mauser I hope to use the same Lee bullet in both rifles.

Tex, brownells calls it the foolproof tk, looks like the sight is adjusted with target knobs, hence the tk. Anyway I have a lyman 66 on my marlin 39A and last week I was keeping my groups under an inch at 50...Pretty good for a guy who can't see.
