    ...out at the range today... decided to try out some lee .32 round balls, home cast tapped into a 30-30 mouth with a tiny brass hammer--the spru is flush with the case mouth... 5 grains of unique and cci 200 primers. Didnt take my chronograph... but they were definatly breaking the sound barrier, but I cant imagine by much.

    Shot several three shot groups at 25 yards with my Winchester 94, Williams FP rear.

    All groups shot under an inch... a couple cut holes. Seemed to keep the same POI.

    Devistating little squirrel load to take with you... so you dont come back empty handed if the deer are cooporating.

    Just a little FYI for everyone.
