32 Remington load data

Post by jmburns » Sat Sep 14, 2019 3:56 pm

Any advice on load data for a 32 remington model 8? I'll be using Hornady 170 grain bullets. I have the following powders to work with.

IMR 4064
IMR 4350
H 4350
Varget
Reloaded 7
IMR 8208XBR

I just got the gun and love it!

Thanks

.32 Winchester Special data will suffice.
One of the manuals has data for Reloader 7 iirc.

I tried 28.5 & 29.5 grains of reloaded 7 and got about 2-1/2" groups at 50 yards. It kicked like a mule when shooting it off the bench.
I then tried 30 grains of IMR 4064 and got 2" group. I bumped it up to 31 grains and shot a 1-1/2" group. I think I'm going to try 32 grains of 4064 since it has noticeable less recoil and is hitting 5" lower on the target compared to the reloaded 7.

I had a .32 barrel assembly and made up a few loads, but I'm not sure if I recorded them. No I didn't, but do have a load listed for the .32 Special 28.0 Reloader 7.

My 45th Lyman Manual lists in the reference section 32 Remington 170 Grain Jacketed: IMR 4064 28.0-32.0
