I was cleaning all my guns really good, takin apart the actions and lubing them up, and things like that, and I looked down the barrel of my 32 to make sure it wasn't collecting any more rust, and I noticed the riflings were gettin worn down (Like I do every time I look at the barrel) so I got a bullet and wanted to see how tight it still is, and it went in with no hesitation, and it had alot of wiggle room (for a bullet) and it appeared to be about a 33 caliber (instead of a .323)
that could explain why it is so hard to keep groups under 20 inches at 100 yards (I used to be able to keep consistant 3" groups a coupe years)
has anybody had this happen before? I looked up the serial number a few months ago and it was from the 1930's. So I reckon it has lived its life. I got it from my grandpa 8 or 9 years ago. he killed alotta deer and a elk with it, back in Oregon. I reckon a moose and a bear "topped it off"
