Please tell us about the revolver, and pictures are always nice too.Thanks for the replies.
I'll check with FS when they reopen. I have some factory loads. I'm concerned about the long term effect of fast burn smokeless powder in an older revolver.
I'll give Glenn's a call.
Ten X no longer makes specialty ammo. I'm only looking at needing 100 rounds. I might go the reloading route. The cost of dies, brass, bullets, and powder will probably be pretty close to getting them thru Buffaloarms.
you could buy a die set and a bullet mold for that price? the lee mold 311-93 could be used if it drops on the larger side. or the lyman 313249 should be good as dropped.Ebay has this:
In good used condition. The box has storage wear/scuffing. A bit of tarnish from old age and old copper stains that have turned green.www.ebay.com
I have used one in .41 Mag and they work. They are not fast. If you have to buy a press, dies, and scale the price doesn't look so bad. Of course, the press and scale could be used for other cartridges. Components are the same either way. Buffalo arms are pretty expensive and out of stock. With this, you could probably spend about $150 and get around 500 rounds. (Not all at once but as many at a time as your cases allow.) At BA, you would probably get about 150 for the same price...
Edit: make a (significantly) lower offer. It is not like there is a huge market for it.
You are correct but I didn't realize that he was already a reloader. With no reloading equipment it would be an option...you could buy a die set and a bullet mold for that price? the lee mold 311-93 could be used if it drops on the larger side. or the lyman 313249 should be good as dropped.
Lee die set is still available for about $30 bucks SKU: 90696
you can use trail boss powder, I never tried BP in my lemmon squeezer. I usually just run wax wad cutters with just a primer....
be interesting if this bullet worked ? Mold Dc Tl314-90-swc - Lee Precision
This article descibes the process for loading the nearly obsolete .32 S&W for a revolver originally chambered for the black powder version of this cartridge.www.massreloading.com
Buffalo Arms co is a solid business. I have spent thousands with them.I'm looking for 32 S&W short black powder ammo. Has anyone tried Buffaloarms black powder ammo or know of another source?
If you can come up with the components , we can work out a date to meet up and you can reload some.Thanks for your input. I don't plan on shooting it enough to warrant reloading. Unfortunately, BuffaloArms is now out of stock and the other 2 vendors you mention don't carry it.
