    .32s are fun.

    Maybe the bullets had to jump too far to reach the throats. Or the heat and humidity are causing fatigue.

    Maybe I should save them for this fall and try again.

    I tried 100 gr HP .32 H&R mag today and the single 7 does like that ammo.
    My new prescription sunglasses do not like gun sights unless the bifocals
    are aligned on the sights forcing a blurry tgt just like they said to have back
    in the dark ages.

    The Single 7 looks like a fun revolver. I have an old Single 6 in .32 H&R Mag that I like to shoot. Fun and cheap since I reload for it. Early may be on to something with the long jump with the .32 S&W Long in that longer cylinder. The wadcutters may be getting dinged up in the cylinder with all that 'waller room' between the case mouth and the throat.
    If a Liberal throws a hand grenade at you, pick it up, pull the pin, and throw it back at them.

    I remember that single six from a few Shoots back.

    Yeah, it was the one with the loooooong barrel. That long barrel helps me shoot more better.

    I tried those .32 S&W long wadcutters again today.
    This time I used a GP 100-----they shoot well enough----though very anemic. 

    Was like shooting .22 shorts.

    My wife's little SW 431 PD in .32 H&R Mag shoots full power loads very well for such a small gun, but .32 SW longs are all over the target

    I should try the .32 S&W ammo I have.

    I took two 1/2 gal milk jugs and some 88 gr .32 S&W ammo and headed for the woods.
    Filled the jugs with water at the last branch and shot the jugs with the .32 S&W ammo from the GP 100.

    I shot, heard some bang, and did not see any indication of a hit. Started to go look and finally noticed the
    water level in the jug going down. I shot the other jug and again a slow leak.


    The .32 S&W ammo shot well, fair enough accuracy; but, right tame terminal damage and no recoil.

    Sounds like it's good enough for getting a bunny or tree rat for the pot when camping during hunting season. :)

    I noticed some slight leading and a crud  ring forming in the GP 100, I think
    from the LRN ,32 S&W ammo as I did not see any after shooting the lead wadcutter
    .32 S&W Long.

    I shot it today with .327 JHP and used Ballistol  to clean out the barrel and chambers.
    A couple of trips through the barrel and chambers with a Ballistol patch and leading was gone.


    Ballistol seems to be effective.
