I inherited a Marlin Model 1893 chambered in 32-40, manufactured in 1901. Of course, I soon learned that you can't get ammo for it anymore. Does anyone else have one of these, and if so, what do you do for ammo? I am in the process of acquiring all the equipment I need to reload these. I have learned that I can reform 38-55 or 30-30 cases and can get .321 bullets.
Hey John,

30-30 brass would be "cheapest/easiest" to "form".

A dab of Imperial Sizing Wax on the expander ball....

8gr to 10gr of Unique or Universal Clays and a good cast bullet ....away you go!

Later, Mark
