    even made a new wildcat..
    I call it the
    .32 Barrelplug

    170 gr .313 Spire point (.303 Brit) over 1.5gr VVN110..
    should have a muzzle velocity of about 15 fps, if it exits the barrel at all..

    yes, it does chamber in a .32 H&R Cylinder..




    I promptly came to my senses and pulled it back apart, and filed it under

    the load I'm REALLY using is 1.5 gr VV N320 and a 72 gr. LRN
    should get around 700 fps out of it..

    and I got it figured as at LEAST as cheap to shoot as .22LR (given current state of ammo prices)

    Should beat a .270:worthy:. At least on paper.

    jbohio, you close to Mansfield or Ashlnd. If so have you ever gone to "The Fin.(Fur,Fin and Feather). Some times they have some pretty good prices on shooting supplies. Last time I was there I found a .270 Win. crimp die which were none existing here in E. Ky. Good price also.

    Yeah. Grew up 20 min outside Mansfield.
    I've been there a few times. I don't get up that way much. They usually have something I can't live without!
