Tin Star N32C Special powder developed for Cowboy Action Shooters shooting lead bullets with revolvers and single-action rifles. It has low bulk density (less free space in the case) and it burns very clean without residues with a burning rate between N320 and N330. Reloading data is currently available for .45 Colt, .44 Special, .38 Special, 357 Mag and .44 Magnum.
Note from editor: I have tried 9.0 grains in a 45 Colt with a 250 grain lead bullet and found it to nearly fill the case completely. Pressure was low, very clean burning, accuracy was the best ever from the test gun and velocity was on par for the original loadings just over 900 FPS. What more could you want! .

With Tin Star, you’ll have the ammunition you need to succeed in this demanding sport. The rest, is up to you.
