I bought a Lee mold for the .32 Colt. They're supposed to be 93g and .311 but with the alloy I'm using, they come out 87g and .310". So far I've only loaded them over 2.5g or Red Dot and a Win small pistol primer. They shoot good but I'm clueless about how fast they're going...

Anyway I think this mold is a killer deal for the blackout if you don't mind casting your own. I sized the first batch to .309 but after this, I'm not going to bother sizing them...

A friend of mine powder coated some of my bullets from mt Lee 311-93-1R mold for the .32 revolver then shot them over a chronograph.

3gr of of Red Dot produced around 1050fps,
2.5gr produced around 900fps
2.0gr produced 760fps

I had been loading them with 2.0g of Red Dot but after this I'm going to stick with 3.0g. He reported better accuracy with the warmer load but that could have been a fluke. The 2.0g loads with Alox lubed bullets have been very accurate out of my Handi Rifle...

Nosler 190
Any "size" 300 case.
OAL ~2.20"
10.3 grains of Hodgdon 4198

~1040fps on average.

I also loaded 11.3 grains and the bullet broke the sound barrier.

Single shot only.

Rifle Used : Remington 700 SPS Tactical 16" with AAC flash hider
Barrel maker: Remington
Barrel Length and Twist : 16" 1:7
Bullet Used (Grain, Manufacturer, Type) : Everglades Ammo 30 Carbine, 110 grain
Powder Charge and Brand : 5.4 gr Trail Boss
Case Used : 300BO factory case (once fired, unsure of brand)
Primer Used : CCI Small Rifle
COAL: 1.885 in
Chronograph Velocity: Unsure of FPS, as I don't have a chrono, and don't know anyone in my area with one.
Notes: Very quiet, even unsuppressed, and very little kick, I'm willing to say an air gun has more kick to it. Single shot only, haven't tried to feed it from the magazine yet.

I'm going to bump this thread for new recipes.

I really liked the LUCKY13 green Zombie 123, but they're no longer available.

Just curious as to what folks are using as a replacement.
