skip the .30-30, use the .32 Win Special for.32 Rem brass?

Guys - I am getting into reloading finally - with "whack a mole" technology, good ol' Lee Loaders for a couple fave calibers. I was thinking of what you all thought about using .32 Win Special brass to make some .32 Rem - sure, got to turn off the rim, and carve an extractor groove just like you do ...

Cam I think you are right, if it's a 150 grn it is more likely a .30 Rem (what we want) and not a .30 Rem AR.
