Need COL for .32 Rem with Speer 170gr jacketed SPFN

Post by cantgrowup » Sat Apr 28, 2018 5:53 pm

I'm loading up for my 100 year old Rem Model 8 in .32 Remington. I've got Graf brass and Speer .321" jacketed SPFN (item 2259). I'm using some load data from the .32 Winchester Special (24.0 - 27.0 gr of IMR 4198), but I need to know what the COL is for this particular bullet in the .32 Remington. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

I was able to locate some load data from Speer website for the .32 Winchester Special using their 170 gr SPFN. It lists a COL of 2.560". Now I will have to find a chart showing dimentions of the .32 Winchester Special brass case to see if it is approximately the same length as my .32 Remington brass cases. If so, then I'll use that COL.

I had a Model 8 .32 Remington barrel assembly and used the Hornady 170 grain .321 as well as the Speer bullet and crimped on the bullet cannelure.
My older Lyman Reloading Manual lists a Max OAL as: 2.525

These worked just fine imo, but they are a bit longer then the factory .32 Remington load, with the Speer bullet load oal being a bit shorter then the Hornady. I used a .30 Remington as a guide as I have some Winchester loads in .30 Rem.

.30 Remington Winchester Silverttip: OAL: 2.508
.32 Remington Grafs brass Hornady 170 grain .321 bullet: OAL: 2.565
.32 Remington grafs brass Speer 170 Grain .321 bullet: OAL: 2.534
