Marlin 36 in 32 Win Spl

Hi everyone!
I have recently become the proud parent of a Marlin model 36 in 32 win. spl. and am rather curious. Has anyone used cast bullets in one of these and how do they perform? Can you drive them 2000 fps + or -? Has anyone seen jacketed bullet loads for the 170 gr. that are 2000 fps +? (Most of the jacketed loads in my books are below 2000 fps.) Also the supply of 32 spl brass in my area seems to have dried up. Can I form them from 30/30 cases without getting into problems? I'd appreciate any comments you folks have.

Marshall, Jeff:
Thanks for the info. With a little luck, maybe I can get some cartridges made up this weekend, and weather permitting, get some range time. Will keep you posted.
Thanks again, everyone.
