  1. The case OD is around .379-.380". A 3/8" bit at .375" is just a tad small. I use a 25/64" drill bit at .390"
  2. I use TB in all my cowboy loads from 32-20, 38 spcl, 45 Colt, and even 45-70. I don't find it any more dirtier than any other smokeless power. As for the cost....that doesn't play into it any more than someone saying why do you shoot 45 Colt when you can get 1000 32-20 bullets for the same price as 500 45 Colt bullets. Shoot the caliber, and load it with what components you enjoy using.
  3. Alcan was a primer manufacturer that I remember from back in the 60's when my dad and I first began to reload. We used them and they were quite reliable. In fact a few years back I came across a few hundred Alcan large rifle primer sleeves from an estate sale that I picked up for next to nothing. Used them in some of my milsurp ammo and they work just fine.
  4. Uberti was making an 1873 rifle in 32-20, of which I own one, but it's not listed anymore on their site. Taylor & Co. still sells revolvers in 32-20 of which I bought two last year. Granted supply is limited but some new firearms are still available.
  5. I have quite a few 32-20's, and I reload for them. Most of the advice has already been given above. Lube the case, or at least run a lubed one in the resizer die every third one or so. Put a decent flair on the case mouth, but don't overdue it. I load on both a single stage Lyman Orange Crush press, or a Hornady LNL progressive, with no problems. Get and use a Factory Crimp die. I prefer 2.3 gr. of Trail Boss under a 100 grain FP bullet.
  6. When I first started in this sport I got a Rossi 92 in 45 Colt to go with my two Uberti 1860 pistols with the 45 Colt cartridge conversion cylinders. Later those pistols were traded in for some Uberti Cattleman .357's, and a Uberti 73 & Marlin 94 SS in .357 were purchased along the way. I still have that Rossi 92. The wife uses it and no matter how many times I have offered to get her "a better rifle" she declines. She "likes the one she has". Not one time has that Rossi ever failed to function or jammed. If you only plan to shoot once in awhile, and don't want to spend a lot of money for a rifle, then go with the Rossi. If you plan to keep shooting long term then spend the extra money for a slicked up Uberti or Winchester 73 rifle.
  7. Ditto....I use the same load of 3.0 grains Trail Boss and 100 gr. .313" bullet tips in all three of my 32-20 rifles, as well as my 32-20 Taylor pistols.
  8. Both my wife and I shoot 20 gauge Stoeger SxS. I reload for them also. Load 7/8 oz. for me, and a lighter 3/4 oz load for her using Unique. Don't find it any more difficult loading 20 ga. then 12 ga. Best part is a few other pards we shoot with shoot 20 gauge also using Winchester AA shells. They don't reload. They give all their spent hulls to me. I have enough hulls to last me many many years.....
  9. When I was a kid I was indeed a cereal killer.....Captain Crunch was my main target.
  10. I use improved cylinder in both my SxS barrels.
  11. 38 Special.....are just cheaper and easier to come by that's all.
  12. Ditto...I have one rifle with and one without. Don't notice any difference.
  13. My rifle hammer is cocked also when the chamber is empty with the bolt back.....
  14. I keep mine simple at the monthly matches. 5 yards for pistol, 10 yards for shotgun, and 15 yards for rifle.
  15. Glad you all had a great time. If you ever get over to the Lebanon & Lancaster county area be sure to look up the Heidelberg Lost Dutchman & the Elstonville Hombre's. We'd love to have ya!
