    I've been considering a .32WCF...rifle. A marlin 1889 or 1894 would do nicely, also considering a Winchester Low Wall or a 1892. A cheap caliber to reload with cast bullets for plinking fun or small game hunting.

    I originally started shooting 32-20 with a 'Marlin '94 rifle built in the early part of the last Century. Wanted a Winchester when Browning brought out the Model 53. Made a quick trade that I wished I hadn't now. But still have that 53 and a 2nd one with a full mag tube added on. The button mag 53 makes a wonderful gun to pack around in the field. I've head shot a few deer with it. Along with those 2 and handguns to match we have a Cimarron '73 short rifle in 32-20 which is really fun to shoot. All of the guns are exceptionally accurate.

    I was able to make it out to the range for a while this afternoon, and had a chance to run some rounds through a couple of 32-20s. This was the first trip for the Bisley. The load was 3.6gr. WW231 under a 115gr. LRN. I was really happy with the 3.6grs of 231, it makes a nice "snappy" round, much more satisfying than the Trail Boss or Unique loads I was using before. 32-20 is a whole lot of fun out of an SAA.

    Best regards,

    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    1873 Winchester made in 1889, 32-20 with button magazine. I stumbled on this one locally and almost didn't buy it because the caliber was unknown to me. Perfect round for the heavy octagon bbl Winchester. Shoots really nice and I'm planning to start reloading for it. I have my eye on a 5.5" 1st gen SAA also in 32-20. The other colt in the picture is a late 3rd gen 45 Colt.

    That is a very nice '73 in a desirable configuration! During my search I found a Winchester 1885 Hi-Wall .32WCF at a decent price, (probably because it's a .32WCF). No doubt it's an exceptionally accurate rifle, but also over built and heavy for it's caliber. Gonna have to think about that one a bit.

    Thanks cozmo and krag. This was refinished at some point which explains the metal and wood condition. The bluing is exceptional and aside from some sanding of the stock along the tang, all the wood is proud of the metal and is beautiful. The button mag gives it a unique look, I think. Really have enjoyed this one!

    I like those button magazine Winchesters sporting rifles, no matter what model or caliber!

    Guess I need to edit my post from last April, Rainier bullets are gone. Based on the market today I doubt they will reemerge.
    I'll just have to learn to love lead.
    I shoot 32-20 in Win 1873, couple of Win 1892s, A Remington model 25 pump, Colt SSA, and Colt Arny Special (4in., 5in., 6in.)
