There is a gun club (which I belong to), but I think it is mostly just for the range. It's worth checking into though. Thanks.

I wouldnt know why he says not to use jacketed... Ive shot both lead and jacketed using Trail Boss.

Have you read this? http://www.imrpowder.com/PDF/Trail-Boss-data.pdf
Thanks for the info. Do you reload for the Nagant? Do you have problems with lead buildup when using reloaded cases?

I went back to look, and he said that jacketed bullets could cause over pressure.

I never received an email from him, so I think I'll just go with 3.5 gr of Trail Boss in some Starline 32-20 brass. I'm still trying to decide on the bullet.

Here's a few I have to choose from.

Magtech 32 ACP (.311) 71 gr FMJ

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/1657150019/magtech-bullets-32-acp-311-diameter-71-grain-full-metal-jacket

Magtech 32 S&W (.312) 85 gr round nose lead

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/1657230839/magtech-bullets-32-s-and-w-312-diameter-85-grain-lead-round-nose

Hunters Supply Hard Cast Bullets 32 Caliber (313 Diameter) 115 Grain Lead Flat Nose

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/2046216411/hunters-supply-hard-cast-bullets-32-caliber-313-diameter-115-grain-lead-flat-nose

Meister Hard Cast Bullets 32 Caliber (312 Diameter) 94 Grain Lead Flat Nose

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/689363/meister-hard-cast-bullets-32-caliber-312-diameter-94-grain-lead-flat-nose-box-of-500

Magtech Bullets 32 S&W Long (313 Diameter) 98 Grain Lead Hollow Base Wadcutter

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/1657187989/magtech-bullets-32-s-and-w-long-313-diameter-98-grain-lead-hollow-base-wadcutter

Hornady XTP Bullets 32 Caliber (312 Diameter) 100 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/405340/hornady-xtp-bullets-32-caliber-312-diameter-100-grain-jacketed-hollow-point-box-of-100

Any suggestions?

Also, would I have to re-size the .313 lead bullets, or would they work as they are?

I dont see why jacketed bullets would cause a overpressure? But I dont have a Nagant, nor have I reloaded for it... So, I dont know..
I use the TB in my levers, mainly because I shoot lead in them.. Its more or less my "cowboy" powder...

I didn't see how they could either. I think I may end up going with lead bullets. I just need to decide which one.

I didn't see any .311 wadcutters at midway, just .313. Would they work as they are, or would they need to be re-sized? Would I have to change the powder charger for them?

I also found these. Would they work pretty good too? http://www.midwayusa.com/product/689...ose-box-of-500

You can use the .313 lead with no changes in powder. Set your crimping die properly to hold the bullet in place. A poor crimp will result in the bullets slipping forward from recoil and jamming your cylinder.

Well, I just placed my order.

Magtech Bullets 32 S&W Long (313 Diameter) 98 Grain Lead Hollow Base Wadcutter
Starline 32-20 Brass
Lee 7.62 Nagant Dies

All I need now are those primers, and I'm good to go.

Very good choice. The .313 HBWC is a very soft alloy. Do not resize these bullets. These should expand and fill the forceing cone giving very good accuracy.

Sweet. It looks like I'm pretty much all set then.

Thanks for the help everyone, I could not have figured all this out without your help. I'll be sure to post the results.

The BuyMilSurp.com site has original Russian ammo for the Nagant revolver. I'll be shooting some in the next couple of weeks in my 1945 Izhevsk revolver. It's the ammo type that has the bullet completely within the cartridge case to seal the cylinder to barrel gap and increase muzzle velocity. Very unique pistol design which even allows a silencer to work.
