Greetings,

I had the pleasure of testing one of the new Pardini 6" 32 WadCutter barrels in a mechanical test fixture.

This barrel has a 0.314" groove diameter and has choke applied to the muzzle measuring about 0.312"

The targets were at 50 yards.

I used 0.314" 100 grain H&N, 0.314" 100 grain home swaged, and 0.314" 98 grain Speer Plinkers 'bumped' in my swaging die.

With some load development, the groups may improve. I was disappointed with the 0.314" H&N bullets.

The home swaged bullets had a roll crimp. This was a test as I normally use a taper crimp.

Cheers,

Dave

Dave. how would you compare this barrel to the “old” 5” barrel, accuracy wise?

Is the choke something new? What is the purpose?

Interesting. Good groups, yet still some tumbling/yawing.

I worked hard on the.32 for a number of years and never was able to get the scores out of it that I thought I should be shooting. Finicky little bastards.
