I am going to reload 32-40 black powder cartridges and need some tips.
I have an old Winchester 32-40 that was handed down from my grandfather. I have boxes of empty brass, and I would like to reload them using my homemade black powder (recipe also handed down).
I have never loaded black powder cartridges, and there is no mention of it in any of my manuals.
It is my understanding that black powder cartridges are loosly filled to the top with black powder, and the bullet compresses the black powder slightly when it is seated in the cartridge. Very simple and very fast.
Do any of you guys have some knowledge on this subject that you could share with me?
Thank you, in advance, for your help.
