32 Special Leverevolution bullets

Help! I just bought some Hornaday 165 grain Leverevolution flex tip bullets for my Winchester 32 Special and I checked in my Hornaday reloading book for the load data and they don't have any data at all for the bullet! Does anyone know where I can get the powder data on this new bullet? Please don't tell me from a new Hornaday reloading manual, I will be getting that ASAP. Is there a place online or can anyone email me some data on this bullet and reloading data? Thanks! Ken

Sorry, but... Page 609 of the Hornady 8th edition has what you're looking for.
Although they have data posted on their website for several cartridges, the .32 Win Special is not listed.

Try giving them a call tomorrow. Tell them you ordered the manual, but it hasn't arrived yet.

I can post some of the published data later, if I get a chance.

32 Special reloading data for FTX bullet

Hi FrankenMauser! Thanks for the info! I called Hornaday and they emailed me the reloading data. No difference from the 170 grain flatnose bullet! (at least in their data) I guess the difference in the bullet will be the drop and retained energy. They also claim the 165 gr. FTX bullet will be more accurate! I loaded up a box this morning. They look great! We will see what they can do! Ken
