Seems like a good time to mention,-----

Of all the Winchester self loading cartridges the easiest and cheapest to make cartridges for is the 35 WSL. 

All you need is 38 special cases, with turned down rims,  and plated 38 projectiles sized to .351.

Jim,

Isn't the 35 the hardest to find? I think i read that it was somewhere but for the life of me I can't find it right now. I have seen a few .32s for sale at gunshows but never a .35. Anyway, its good to know if I do run across one that reloading it will be relatively easy. Thanks!

John,

Look on GB.com. There are usually several 35 WSL for sale. The hard part is finding one without a pitted bore.

A pitted bore can be very accurate but only with jacketed bullets , not the cheaper plated bullets.
