I looked up Sage. Are you using the aluminum GCs?
No I’m using the 32 cal wads. They might not be in stock right now. I opted for the metal and vegetable wad because it was the same price as the double vegetable wad package. But you can also sharpen the mouth of a case and then use a hammer to punch some out from cardboard or card stock. Look on YouTube. Some guys have some pretty clever ideas for them
I like to run the .308 gas checks through a Lee .309 sizer die. That makes its easy to get them down the case. I also made a seater from some 10/32 all thread. I screw this in my 357 bullet seater and use those to seat the cup over the powder. This works well and lets me get a maximum amount of shot in the case. Then I seat the top GC with the bottom side up. I can't do that unless I resize the gas checks.
I like making shot loads like this better than using the plastic capsules. I don't think you get the hole in the center of the pattern like you do with the capsules. I guess the rifling can't spin the loose shot like it can the capsules.
Nice! I have done it with .38s and .44s, but never .32 Long. It could make a snake gun out of this little darling.
Thats a nice Model 31 there!
