    32-20 my new Favorite to shoot.

    Went to the range today with a NIB and new to me with a late 3rd gen 32-20....I love this little caliber! For sure my new fav and i cannot wait to re-load for it.... shot 25 yards off hand and it shoot a little low but again this was my first time shooting it with black hills. Anyone have a good source for projectiles 32 lead i presume and i am going to lookup and see if i can use Trail boss which i really like. Anyone else love this caliber and re-load for it ?

    I cast my own- 87 gr RN. 2.8-3.0 gr. of 700X works well. Medium loads are the most accurate. Check Buffalo Arms for projectiles. I know they sell some heeled .313 bullets. Don't believe the crap you read about reloading .32-20- it's easy.

    I don't have one but a .32-20 is at the top of my list. If and when I get one I plan to reload black powder.

    Mark. I like Trail Boss too.
    I’ve noticed erratic accuracy with others and I do believe it’s due to the powder laying below the primer.

    3 loads.

    This is:
    LilGun (Red) TiteGroup (Blue) and Unique (Green).
    I settled on Lil Gun for this particular 97 year old SAA because the elevation is right on - I blew that one at 4:30.
    25 yards off hand.
    Lion gun.
