I do have a question about using the .32 H&R in nagants. I would like to use it in mine, but due to its much higher pressure I have been relutant to try it. I have no idea what pressure the nagant were designed to handle and I also do not know what pressures are developed by the .32 H&R Magnum. The fact that nothing bad has happened is not definative proof that each and every nagant will survived such usage.The Model1895 Nagant revolver will shoot any of the following ammo safely and without blowing a ton of anything out of the gap between the cylinder and barrel: 7.62X38R(Nagant), .32 S&W Longs and .32 H&R Magnums. I regularly shoot all 3 of those calibers from both of my Nagants, there is a more pronounced smoke screen from the cylinder/barrel gap with anything but the correct 7.62 Nagant ammo
Link didn't work for me?Here is a video showing the difference between 2 of the different cartridges that will fire from these guns, the first 3 shots are .32 H&R Magnum and the remaining 4 shots are of the Hotshot brand 7.62X38R Nagant ammo.
To be quite honest I haven't had one bulged case. Maybe I'm just lucky?I removed the videos from my youtube page, I got really tired of the moronic comments I was having to deal with.
How are you guys reloading the .32 brass? I thought reloading bulged cases was a bad idea and every .32 case I fire out of mine bulges badly, whether it's .32 longs or H&R Magnums.
Just from reading what it is written is sounds more like opinions than actually facts especially when Kripp who knows bundles about C&R firearms has them and shoots them without hesitationIf you want soom info on russian guns and the nagant revolver go to www.h6x.net. On this site the nagant revolver is a collectors item and should not be shot because it could blow up on you. The bullets in the hotshot ammo is under sized and under powered at least thats indicated on this site.
