Default 32-20 winchester ammo search

Hello all,
I have an old single action Colt .32 wcf that is in great shape. A couple years ago I used up what ammo I had. Thought I'd bring it out for a little practice & find that ammo for it is nonexistant.

Does anyone have any ideas. Everywhere I've looked i s"out of stock".

Happy T'day to all,
Lee

If you happen to spot some new old stock laying around make sure it is handgun loads and not rifle loads. Back in the day they made both and there is CONSIDERABLE difference in the loading.

Yep. The old "rifle only" factory stuff is hard to find but I have a box in my collectibles.
It says something like "Adapted For Winchester, Marlin and Colt Rifles?"
A Colt SAA is stout enough to handle it, but not a Smith or a Colt DA. They aren't likely to 'grenade' but will shoot loose way too soon.
Modern factory loads and most reload recipes are handgun-safe.

There is a local store here that has six boxes on the shelf at $59 each. I believe it is 100 gr Remington lead. It is brand new stuff, not NOS. Donít know if they will ship but I can give you contact info if you PM. I noticed it because it was the only ammo left on the shelf yesterday.

I use cowboy action loads in my S&W 32-20 Hand Ejector. I reload so I haven't looked for any for a while.

Try Georgia Arms for ammo, good stuff! I shoot 44 spl. and 32-20 lead. Accurate, cleaning burning powder and they seem to have stock others don't.

The 100 grain Remington lead load will barely chronograph 1100 fps from a rifle. From a handgun, maybe 850 or 900 at the most. Very mild. I don't they've made the hot rifle .32-20 in a long time, buth there might still be some around. It's hard to see the .32-20 as a hoarder's cartridge. A hoarder would obsess over something more modern.

Don't think it's much of a collectors item. Just not much demand apparently.

Chris - Saw your email. Was on business trip for a few days. Offer sounds fine to me. I can't find the stuff anywhere. Will email you.
