Yes, 150 or 170 grains would be the weight of the bullet. A starting grain weight would be the amount of the specific
powder. That's the point where you start. The manual will also list a maximum charge. That's the upper limit for that bullet weight and specific powder. Don't go over that weight!
Here's some info I happen to have on my desk:
.41 Rem Mag
210 grain Hornady XTP ( this is the bullet weight, brand and type)
H110 (the brand of powder)
Starting load= 19.8 grains (this is where you start with H110 powder and hornady XTP bullets0
Maximum load=22 grains (this is the max load with this bullet powder combo)
All the above is from the Hodgdon Powder website.
Also, can the 32-20 WCF be fired from the 32-20 colt revolver? I was using the round that said 32-20 on the bag but it didn't say anything about WCF, so I didn't know if I could use the 32-20 WCF on the 32-20 Colt.
Yes, same thing.
