Do you have a Lee Case Trimmer lock stud for 32-20? Padded Vise? How much do you have to trim off?

Re: 50 Yard Postal Shoot June-July

Jeff,

You inspired me to play around with some cast loads. I recently acquired a Lee 8mm Maximum Mold. It looked like a good bullet for the Lebel. I shot my Gew 1888/05/35 vs my Lebel. Much to my suprise, the Lebel won...I had never tried cast in it.

Re: Swedish M41 Surplus Ammo, good or bad LOTS?

I think you are overthinking it. If I remember correct, the Swedes stopped corrosively priming before 1950. The Norwegians kept corrosive priming. Primers are either corrosive or non-corrosive. I would just clean regularly.
