    I was looking at a Lee 6 cavity 311-93-1R, but being new to 32 caliber I really need some advice.

    Good evening. I have that mold, actually 2 of them. Only one of them casts large enough to fit my 327 SP101, but does not shoot very well in it. My Sp101 needs .314 bullets and the RCBS 98 or Lyman 311316 clones from NOE(314-115-FN 2 cavity GC (314316)) have ben best in mine. I load them to arround 1000fps, if I need more than that I got bigger guns. For me, the heavier bullets work better in the 327, YMMV

    What revolver is it for? This makes a difference because if it’s a Single 7 it has a short cylinder. You can shoot heavyweights out of them but you end up seating them deep. Accurate has a few designs specifically for the short cylinder.

    For an SP 101. RKing22 answered my question on that mold. Now to find another that is suitable. Have not got the gun in hand yet so I have not slugged the bore. I do powder coat so I will gain a little on diameter but maybe not enough for that mold. Something in the 313 – 314 diameter from what I gather from your comments.. RKing22, what exactly is the your preferred weight bullet?

    Not the .327, but I load the shorter .32 mag with the NOE version of 311008. I went with this weight to keep point of aim/impact the same. I find that .311 works best because of really tight chamber throats- anything larger puts leading in the middle of the chamber using Starline brass. I have found that PC helps greatly and is my preferred way with cast bullets. (sized after PC).

    Retread, I load for 32SWL,32HR,and the 327 so I have kinda settled on using the 120s as a primary load in the SP101 and the NOE/RCBS 98 in 32 HR cases as primary for 32HR, and the same or 93Lee in 32SWL. Althou, when I get a chance to run some of the Mihec wadcutters it will probably become primary in 32SWL. My 32long is a SW 31-1, it needs .313 minimum to fit the throat. The 32HR is a single six and has .311 throats, but shoots the .314 sized 98gr well. The 327 Sp101 checks at .313(from memory) and will not shoot anything smaller very well. I size at .312 for a 32-20 or .314 for the straight wall 32s. The .312s are pretty good in the SS but not so in the other 2 guns. Check your throats, mine might not be “normal”.
    Poi with the SP101 is probably going to be an issue, mine shot way high. I made a new front blade to be able to sightit in. I don’t consider it a belly gun, so I want it to hit where I aim at 25 yards, it’s abunny gun 🙂 That made it easier to just say I’m gonna use 120s in it. The NOE 98 shoots to the same basic POI in the 32HR cases so it worked out well. I like to select a load ,sight it in and then just shoot it. That way I know by case size what load I have. I am not the most organized squirrel in the woods, so I try to make it easier.

    Opps , I don’t powdercoat so your 93 Lee may work out well for you, let us know. Also my SP is a 3 inch early run, not the current 4 inch with glow worm.

    I never loaded for the 327 but I like the lyman 311316 for all my 32s.

    Hi rmatchell, I do too, so I got an NOE clone 4 cavity with 2PB and 2 GC for my 32s. But then they ran a RCBS clone and I got a 5 cavity! Can’t beat hi production 🙂
    That’s what I ment to post instead of the goofy number my fingers typed above, this “314-115-FN (314316) ” It shoots great in a Reming M25 in 32-20 also.
