    So I got myself a Christmas present.:D
    Born June 10th in 1886, #1933 made, chambered in .32-40 Win. Very professionally done re-blue circa 40's? Checkering was nicely done, but I wished it had been left alone. :(
    It had a Lyman scope and mounts added about the time of the refinish, scope was long gone when I got it. Found a pre WWII Wollensak 4X on the auctions that went on like it was made for it.
    Time to work up a load for it, bore is in mint condition!
    Anyone have a pet load for a cast 165grn FN in the .32-40?

    Ski, it's a rough job but, somebody has to spoil me!:)
    Rain and crappy weather may let up this weekend, might get to have some range time with it.

    Range Report
    Shot some 170grn FN factory loads, got the elevation on the scope set, but didn't want to shoot up any more ammo adjusting windage until I get some cast bullets loaded up. Shot for a group instead, I think it's a keeper! :D
