Can one of you guys tell me if it is possible to reload 7.62 Nagant brass. I am thinking of buying one of the revolvers and I would want to reload for it.
Also does Lee sell dies for this caliber?

do a couple searches in this area. there have been a couple discussions on the nagant reloading. i can recall at least 2. there were some good questions kicked around about reloading.. including types of dies to use to get a taper crimp.. etc. ( m1 carb I believe).

If you have fired nagant brass.. check to see if it is berdan ( 2 offset flash holes ) or boxer. I havn't fired any to check my prvi/ppu stuff.

i know that didn't answer any of your questions.. sorry. good luck though.

i hope to be reloading for it soon as well.

the PPU is boxer. and yes you can reload it. You will most likely need to find a bullet mold for .32 cal wadcutters (search bullet molds for the .32 H&R family) Another way you can make good plinkin ammo is with .32 cal roundballs for cap n ball revolvers. just a light charge of trailboos and push a roundball into the case and crimp over it.

Lee does make the die sets...

and Dardas offers .32 cal wadcutters.

and it actually flies straight enough to plink with? :)
Yep. youd be suprised how accurate a roundball load is in a cartridge gun. One of my favorite pest control loads is .451 roundballs run thru a .431 sizer die and loaded 2 stacked in a .44 mag case with 8 grains of unique. You get 2 bullets per shot and they dont spread apart much at all inside 25 yds.
