Re: Reloading 32 rimfire

I bought a dozen pieces of re-worked brass, they work fine, don't need much powder as the 22 blank gives it a little push. Work your loads up slow, start with maybe 1.5 grains of Bullseye or similar. Remember 32 Colt, not 32 Colt New Police, which is just 32 S&W long with a flat nose. Colt just cou...

32 rimfire rounds have identical measurements as 32 Colt.
A guy on GB will sell you 32 Colt brass with offset primer holes that take 22 blanks, and Bob's your uncle.
Much easier!
Neat, Have you reloaded these??? How well did they work..?? The brass in the article seems to be very similar.

Reloading 32 rimfire

Came across this little item about reloading 32 Rimfire.. From looking at other places, the biggest negative is that the brass is a tad fragile and can be damaged.. that being said looks better than nothing..

Poor bubba gets the blame for alot things Sears and the NRA did

So we look at a Sporterized rifle today and we blame it on BUBBA.. But more likely we should be blaming it on large companies like Sears and the NRA for chopping down rifles.. and in this case charging a premium to do it.. 1966 Sears Catalog.. Had to pay more to get them chopped up back in those day...

Re: One of America's legendary small arms was designed by a convict

Williams developed the "floating chamber" to give the belt guns enough energy to cycle. One of four (reportedly) in existence - Winchester 1917 dedicated .22 trainer from the Winchester museum. Many thanks I was not aware of those.. Now that would be a blast.. I remember more then a few years ago B...

Re: One of America's legendary small arms was designed by a convict

It's amazing how much your memory can deceive you. I recall seeing the movie as a kid. The thing is, I remember Jimmy Stewart demonstrating the reliability of a lever action rifle by dunking it in a trough of muddy water before loading the single cartridge a guard handed him. Since I know the M1 Ca...

Re: One of America's legendary small arms was designed by a convict

His shop interior was removed from his home and reconstructed in the NC Museum of History. Located in downtown Raleigh. I have seen it several times. Everything down to bottle tops on window sills and cigarette packs was reconstructed. Very interesting. Wow... did not know that... I will need to st...

Re: One of America's legendary small arms was designed by a convict

Nice gun tale... David "Carbine" Williams is one of those true characters in the gun world. I have read that he was a bit of a pain to work with. Another invention the Mr Williams is responsible for is an adaptor for 1919s & 1917s to be able to shoot 22 LR in a full auto mode.. The darn thing is sim...
