    Sgt Dog I would almost bet that round Jcann has would fit well.
    I got mine to fit just fine and fired one and going out tomorrow to fire a handful of them at Lexington.

    I do load .44-40, which Has a similar bottleneck shape. While I can’t speak directly about the .32-20, I’m aware of a similar problem with .44-40. A lot of CAS folks have shaved a bit off the base of the sizing die to move the shoulder down a bit farther. I never had that problem, but I used to have problems with crimping that would leave a little ring just below the crimp, preventing them from chambering.

    Not sure if either of these ideas will help, but it’s something to look at. I would also recommend a Lee Factory Crimp die.

    I have came to the conclusion that these chambers when cut were not all the same or even close.
    Today we have much better stuff being turned out.
    I suppose if you get the load to work that is about as good as it gets.
    By the looks of this gun I would say it has not been fired in over 50 years.
