Isn't 00 buck 33 caliber? Suggest you try 0 buck -- that's 0.320". Try it with a thin patch and start the ball with a short starter and you should be fine as long as your barrel is clean and in good condition.

Smile Tradition's Crockett .32

March 30, 2013
My Fellow Shooters:
I have a .36 TC Seneca with a .45 barrel too. Both are exquisitely accurate. Going squirrel hunting with the .36 using the target load of 30grs P Pyrodex- 1650 fps- I found my friends with .32s kit-built and .32 Cherokees loaded with 20-22 grs P Pyrodex had an advantage in that those loads with the small .310-.320 balls- in that these would tear up no more squirrel than a .22 HP or .22 WMR- while my .36's .350 RB would ruin whatever quarter of the squirrel I hit. I learned to aim for the head from close range to 50 yds which proved very effective. I, too, have looked at the Crockett .32 with interest. But I already have the .36 Seneca which is a formidable performer on head-shots if I do my part and the Crockett has grown very expensive. Good shooting to you all.

I'll give my experience with my .32 Crockett.
I have tried conicals, even Speer .32 cal pistol bullets and nothing beats a PRB.
My rifle likes to be swabbed between shots. The best, most consistent groups have been with Hornady .315 balls and a lubed .015 patch. This target is an example of why you should never take the 5th shot when you have a nice group.
The lower target was shot with the first shot clean, then two without cleaning, then a shot after cleaning. I replaced the sights with an aperture rear and globe front for 60+ yo eyes.
