Advice please, there is some 32-40 rounds in a local auction that I could bid for but I know the diameter of the jacketed bullets is .320ins and my barrel mod 93 built 1903 slugs at .326ins. Would they be like an arm in a shirt sleeve fit and wander down the bore and be a waste of money? and would they be a little hot for my old rifle ? I do not hunt with it (not allowed over here.) Thanks
More like bangers down a hallway! (hotdogs, sausages etc for Yankeephiles) My Marlin 1893 in 32-40 measures like your rifle and shoots a pattern (not a group) like 00 buckshot when using "factory" .320-.321. I agree the cartridges mentioned would be more collectables than shooters. Cast and size .327-.328 or paper patched lead boolits with moderate loads even black powder. More totally enjoyable and will actually stand a chance of hitting something.
