    Those are the oddest looking revolvers I've ever seen...

    I know, it's like a SA that wanted to be a DA then became a ninja. (The gas seal made it possible to have silencer installed on it.)

    The 32 longs are much quieter than the actual nagant ammo. The gas seal must really add a lot to muzzle velocity, or it is just enough to push it supersonic. I have been using 3.1 gr of 700-x but want to try trail boss to fill the case better. Does anyone have experience loading these with the plated DEWC's that grafs sells? Reloading data is pretty scarce for these.

    I just finished loading some 7.62 nagant rounds tonight....I used this data
    http://www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Trail-Boss-data.pdf
    I found that 70% case capacity with full length nagant brass (not 32-20) was 2.7 gn of trail boss and 80% was 3.0 gn, I'll report back once I have given them a try. I use the 98 gn plated DEWC from grafs.com and the brass is from buffaloarms.com (headstamp says 7.62 Nagant G.F.L.)

    Actually, I once hear that it only added about 20% more velocity (or pressure) compared to the comparable .32L. Other then the silencer part, this is where Russian roulette comes from. (since the round is almost completely hidden)

    The 7.62x38r loads make a much louder pop than the 32 smith longs which don't have the gas seal. The tokarev 1927 was in this caliber too.
