hmmmmm, .320 diameter?,...I wonder,...

Jump in the lathe for a minute and fabricate the world's simplest seater die,...

One grain of Bullseye later,..

A couple of appropriate .32 caliber vehicles,..some earplugs,..then it's off to the basement!

These big BB guns are fun.

Anyone else ever try the RCBS primer-only-powered plastic wad-cutters?



I shot some that my buddy made up years ago. They make nice clean wad-cutter holes through paper targets.

A pic of one of the recovered roundballs after being shot into a stack of magazines shows that the rifling is getting quite a purchase on the side of the ball as it swages down from .320 to the .312 groove diameter of the .32 long barrel.

As mentioned, I only loaded these with 1 grain of Bullseye. As well as they're being gripped by the rifling, it appears as though I could step them up quite a bit.

Wonder if that'll work in a 32 ACP cartridge in a 308 chamber adaptor?:D

Johnny Mack asked, "Anyone else ever try the RCBS primer-only-powered plastic wad-cutters?"

Yes, I had (and I suspect I still do, somewhere in my stuff) a dozen or so of the projectiles. They were good for fun-shooting in the barn, practicing my queek-draw. I used a stack of (gun) magazines and catalogs for a backstop. They'd penetrate up to their length in the paper. Wouldn't want to be shot even with one of these things.

I didn't have the sexy red plastic shells. The projos were a gift from a pal. It gave me a use for some steel cartridge cases from WW2 that I didn't want to load real gunpowder into.
