I am trying to find load combinations for squirrel and rabbit hunting with a .32 Crockett Traditions Performance rifle. Is anyone shooting conicals in this caliber and if so where do you get them? Also, for best accuracy what do you find is most consistent with this caliber rifle? Any help would be appreciated.

Greetings from Vermont Banjopicker
To the best of my recollection, I don't believe anyone is making .32 caliber conicals any longer because
years ago I remember reading were they were deemed unsafe to shoot.
I'm not an expert on bullets or muzzleloaders, so please check with the experts first
before you try just any old conical or round ball.

I THINK you'll find that the .32 caliber roundballs measure .310 and/or .315
The .310 round balls are probably just for plinking or self defense whereas the .315 roundballs are better suited for hunting accuracy.

Technically I don't know why they make both but like I said I'm no expert.
The experts at Traditions Firearms should be able to give you more info or steer you in the right direction.


You should contact Traditions Firearms directly and ask their techs.

Good Luck to you and Welcome to the Club.

I hunt with a .32 using 310 balls and 30 grains of bp. works just fine. I have a Traditions Crockett with a 1:48 twist. Nice little gun.:yes:
