The Speer loading manual lists 4.1 grains of HS6 with their 100 grain JHP. I wonder if this load would work with the BTB 115 gr flat point. Any ideas?
Thanks

Dave,
I don't have any experience with the .32 to share, but my thoughts would be, if you can't find any published data for the bullet/powder combo you mention, I'd feel safe backng the charge down by 3-5 tenths, but a lot depends on what gun you're planning to shoot these loads in.

If you plan to use an older I frame S&W, I'd strongly recommend getting some sound advice before making any guesses as to charge weights, with a bullet in that weight range.

Just my two cents worth, better safe than sorry is the rule...... in handloading especially! <!--emo&;)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'><!--endemo-->

Good luck to ya!

2 Colt Pocket Postives had a weak forcing cones that were not strong enough for  the 32 Colt  load:

" Lyman 45" 1970 77 gr #311252 alloy #2 4,8 gr. Unique 1111 fps S&W30 w/
3: barrel 1.280" OAL.

Based on this, I would recomend extreme caution with these dimimutive and finely built revolvlers.
