If so, could you cite a couple of starting & max sample loads for a 32-20 STRONG RIFLE data? 100gr bullet. Anybody else that could cite couple of loads from published (rifle) data would be appreciated. Only thing I can find on the net is the Hodgdon stuff which is for handguns, and appears to be black powder pressure levels. I am pretty sure that the rifle loads should be able to approach 2000 fps in a modern rifle.

Paul, thanks a ton, that's what I needed. Suppose I ought to check the CURRENT edition, maybe they still show hi vel loads for the 32-20. (I assume you are citing 32-20 and your numbers are a misprint, yes?)

Yup, just a typo. Data was taken from the rifle section. There are loads in the handgun section but they are loaded to lower levels. I'd typed the loads then went back and did the header. That what happens when you type with two blind fingers.

This is data from #9 Hornady book. 32-20 rifle loads and it says loads are for MARLIN 1894 CL rifle.

100 grain bullet HP XTP

Accurate #9 9.3 for 1700 fps, 10.2 1800, 11.0 1900, 11.9 2000, MAX 12.7 2100

H110 11.0 for 1800 fps, 12.1 1900, 13.2 2000, 14.3 2100, MAX 15.4 at 2200

IMR 4227 12.2 for 1700 fps, 13.0 1800, 13.8 1900, 14.6 2000, MAX 15.4 at 2100

I checked the information several times to be sure I copied the book 100% correctly. From pages 508 and 509.

kmoore, thanks. The rifle I am contemplating using these in is a Browning model 53, modern (ca. 1990) production. I am pretty sure it is as robust of an action as the Marlin CL's. This is the same action as the 92 which they chamber in 44 mag. Besides I will be sticking closer to starting loads, not max. Mainly, I just want to avoid lead bullets. Once Remington discontinued their jacketed, rifle round, I don't believe anyone still manufactures anything but lead.

Nothing wrong with lead bullets. If made from a decent alloy and properly sized they will almost never lead a barrel. I've shot 175 gr. cast lead bullets from an M94 Winchester and a Marlin 336 to a full 2200 SPS with no leading at all. Killed quite a few deer with that load as well.

Your welcome. When I read the warning I knew I needed to include it and figured you might already know.... But just in case.
I have a 92 made for Navy arms by Rossi around 1980. In .357 its a excellent copy of the Winchester. Not like the later 92s that Rossi sold under their name. Always wanted a real Winchester 92 from back in the day, but gave up that idea. I wanted a shooter and got one. I do like the Marlin and may have gotten 1 if this gun did not show up from a guys collection, unfired about 10 years ago.
Let us know how your gun shoots.

Thanks, Mrbumps. I requested the 9th only because I had seen in cited as one that had 32-20 data for strong rifle. I don't have a clue what the latest edition is. I think mine is the fourth from about 1970 something. Buried in the basement somewhere.

kmoore, I haven't bought it yet. A friend has one in good shape that we are "discussing".

Paul, your lead bullet comments are well taken. I just prefer handling the jacketed ones. Mainly because I have so little experience in shooting/sizing/lubing lead, and know very little about the chemistry mixes. Also, I assume (dunno, just assume) that jacketed are less sensitive to crimpling pressure.
