Re: 32 cal. cap and ball

There is not alot of mass in that small 32 caliber ball. I don't know if I expected it to go completely through the golf ball or not?? But regardless, you are definitley ready for squirrel season!!

How far did it penetrate?? And did you have the golf ball up against a solid object?? Or could the golf ball absorb the recoil and move?? Tom.

Good Shooting! How much powder?I'm using 20grs of FFFg and its plenty for squirrel.Hear of some that use 10-12 grs.Now lets see some pics this fall.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: 32 cal. cap and ball

i was useing 25gr fffg. a little hot but seems to work nice for it. not sure how far it went in but,it left about a 1/4inch buldge on the other side. i had it hanging on a string. the string broke and the ball flew to the 50 yard backstop. i want to see it work on some hogs before fall.

Shoot a golf ball the same way with a 22 rifle and compare the 2.
