    I'am wondering if 30.30 brass will work for a 32 win special if resized? I know 32 brass can work for 30.30.

    After doing a quick search for "Necking up .30-30 brass to .32 Special," it seems it is a common practice, the only thing would be that the brass will still be headstamped .30-30, and there is a little concern that a necked up .30-30 to .32 Spl. MIGHT fit in a well worn .30-30 chamber.
    There are quite a few cartridges that use necked up,(and down) cases, my .35 Whelen comes to mind, made from necked up .30-'06 brass, I did that for quite a while until factory .35 Whelen brass became available.

    I have 2 boxes of mixed brass & a partial box of loaded 7 WW silvertips 11 RP, all 32 win special, they came from an estate, so I can't confirm that they are factory, but they do look factory, make me an offer if your interested.

    Dave, besides your post being a thread jump which is actually not allowed per rules, you also did not put in a price for an item you are selling which is a second violation of the forum rules.

    Where were u guys when I tried giving away 32 ammo and brass? I couldn't even give it away so I broke it all down and turned it into 30-30 food.

    :Voice of a tard in the woods that found a piece of your brass that you have lost by accident: "dang ole dang mang, where you find a 7mm bullet that big to fit in that there hole?"

    Can not admit to ever loosing any brass. They and would probably revoke my being a veteran marine status or worse. I have been known to produce and show someone a '7mm Remington' loaded cartridge when asked what I shoot. The look on their face is well worth the cost of admission (the license and tag cost).

    I do the same type of thing with my 30.06 Ackley Improved ... I must be genetically evil ... :-/
