I picked up a nice Husky Nagant revolver yesterday, and I'd like to shoot it. (I reload for my Russian Nagants already) Anyone have any starting loads and bullet suggestions? I read that it's about a .323 bore, but I tried slugging it with a .314 wadcutter and it was a good, snug fit. I plan to trim new Starline .32-20 brass to length, and then fire-form it.
Also, what's the year of production? It's Husqvarna with a 3 digit matching serial of 841.
Thanks a lot,
Chris

You dont have to fire form it, just trim in and reload with led .32 bullet, it will work

I use trimmed .32-20 brass, a Rapine bullet (mould # 319125) sized to .321" (@125gr) and 4.8gr of 2400 powder for approx. 656fps. I've been told that untrimmed .32-20 brass can be used and it will put the bullet closer to the end of the cylinder. As I have a lot of trimmed brass I have not tried this.

I have been using untrimmed 32-20 brass and the Speer 95 grain 0,314 soft lead HBWC and 4,5 grains of Blue Dot. Seat bullet almost all way to end of chamber.

Have also been using 9,0 grains by weight of 777 FFG under 125 grain 0,315 soft lead bullet, with 0,320 X 0,060 fiber wad under bullet, seated out as above. Velocity about 650 fps.

Both loads shoot well in my gun.

Am also using 32-20 loading dies and only resize the first mms of neck enough to hold bullet securely.
