Do not get too excited..
That box was only 40 ft away..

32 rimfire is a very old round I think from around the end of our Civil War era.

I had to leathe turn the brass case shell..make the bullet mold..
N cast the heeled bullet..

The power is from a 27 cal ramset blank...
Slip the blank in the rear of the case n press the bullet in the mouth..
The heel part fits tightly inside the case.. to hold it it place..

The tools there are to remove the spent blank..

So the shell is reuseable..

Dad had a .31 rimfire octagon barrel single shot.
It was in such poor condition (2 rounds would hit a big Tide cardboard box from one side to the other)
we had it bored out to a .38 when the works were rebuilt.
