WTB 32 Long Colt Brass for Ballard Rifle

Looking to buy some 32 long colt brass, new or reformed, for my Ballard 32 Long.  I know this stuff is really hard to find and I don't have a lathe to slim down the S&W 32 Long brass.

Jack Harrison, who sometimes posts here as <tenmile>, sells it on Gunbroker.

Both RMC and RCC seem to have been "disappeared" on DuckDuckGo, (which is actually Bing).   Time to move on to another search engine.

No matter, as their prices are well over 2x what Jack is asking, and his product is drawn brass of the proper alloy.

I have to agree 100%. I have dealt with Jack, and his products, prices, and customer service are second to none.

I'm not a complete idiot, some of my parts are missing.

Thanks to all, I'll look up Jack on Gunbroker.  Was trying to avoid Roberson or RCC (who I do like, have dealt with them over the years).

The only problem with the 32 S&W brass is when the majority of it is slimmed down with the Colt die, it makes the wall slightly thicker, & another member on here agrees they do not have a very long reload life due to splitting. I myself have used my my Colt die to slim to proper diameter, then put a short wood pencil with an eraser into my drill, then hold a steel file against the part above the rim to trim it down until it slides into the chamber, my small belt grinder works even better.

Sounds like an efficient way to trim the neck wall thickness.

I have always thinned necks using a Sinclair Case wall trimmer with an appropriate sized mandrel.
