I am finally beginning to get some time to do some shooting. Last winter, I asked Tom at Accurate Moulds to modify one of his 32-20 existing designs. The result was #31-112M

The rifle I used today was an original Winchester Model 53 made in 1929, chambered in 32 W.C.F. (32-20). When chambering a round, the front driving band around the bullet made contact with the rifling just before the lever was fully closed, resulting in a snug fit and a bit more resistance during the final few degrees of closing the lever. The bullets were what I call ‘soft cast’ WHERE post_id = pure clip on wheel weights, air cooled. Here is a photo of the rifle …

My 32-20 is a 50 yards hunting rifle and I am very pleased with this bullet for that purpose. I have tried a lot of bullets but this is the best I’ve found so far. I also tried a 3-shot group at 50 yards with a 100 grain Remington JSP bullet and got a group of 1 & 1/8" spread horizontally. Not sure what is going on there; I would have expected better than that.

I’d be very pleased with that target too. Congratulations on the bullet modification.
I enjoyed your first sentence Kirk. Right now there are a few rifles I would like to shoot and just can’t make the appropriate time. I imagine that happens to most everyone at sometime or another.
