    Ken are you using a actual target wad cutter bullet in a 32-20? If so which ones and how are they treating you? What guns are you shooting them in? Seen them and always wanted to try a few but can't justify them in 32-20s for any additional accuracy (and the additional cost). Haven't liked the 100gr bullets we were shooting for a while so I just stick to the 115s.

    MISSOURI BULLET COMPANY CAST 32c (.313) 98gr ?

    I need to load some for my 32 long, I have to use my RCBS press as I didn't buy the Dillon conversion for my Square Deal. I know I have brass and bullets somewhere around here.

    I've been sitting in the garage putting .38's together with my Lee Loader more than usual. Mostly when my wife says she's had enough of me in her space and needs some quiet.

    Being bone idle, I don't reload or shoot as much as I should or could. The motivation has cloaked me of late, though, and I have the 550s clicking along. The thunk of loaded cartridges falling into the bucket is broken by the sound of the exhaust fan at the casting furnace. Of late, it has been 9mm coming off the line as I am down to a couple hundred cartridges in that caliber. By the end of the week, I will have 2 or 3 callons of 9s to go with the several gallons of .45 Colt and ACP, .44, 41, 357, ,38 spl, .380 acp, .32-20 and .32 acp, not to mention all the paper patched rifle cartridges. Sometimes it seems like I am employed instead of retired.

    How do you like the coated bullets and have tried coating them yourself? Any significant difference on accuracy?
    I shoot hard-cast through my 45/70 and 1917 revolver so I've been checking out powder coating out since it appears to cut down on barrel leading.
    It doesn't seem that difficult to do at home if everything is set up correctly.

    I only use them in the 32-20. I like them because they are a lot cleaner than the lubed lead 32-20s to reload. No accuracy difference that I can see. Have not coated any of them myself.
