.32 ACP brass availability?

Post by beeser on Tue May 05, 2015 10:05 pm

Anybody know where .32 ACP brass is available.  I wanted to stick with Starline but they apparently won't be making any until later this year.

Speaking of .32 ACP brass and reloading...

If I were to take the second option of purchasing commercial rounds what is the preferred brand?  I've seen Fiochhi, Geco, Privi, CCI Blazer, Federal, PMC etc. for sale as loaded rounds.  My thinking would be to purchase the loaded rounds then use the brass for reloads.

Geco is really RWS?  Heard it's a little hotter than what we might reload but it lists at 984FPS but Fiocchi runs 1150FPS?  S&B 1043FPS?  Seems not as hot?

Or.. does brass really matter?  Planning on acquiring a Pardini SP to shoot it in.

I believe PardiniUSA recommends these ....

I shot some today for the first time with my SP.

I haven't bought factory for quite awhile.  Whew, 65+ cents per round depending on where you buy it.

I guess you didn't look at this one. That is .33 for loaded ammo. I thought it was a pretty good deal.

You can get the same ammo for about 55 cents per round elsewhere but that's about the cheapest I've found online.  The Hornady 60 gr. bullet itself is not cheap either, which is the reason some of us are looking for a LSWC alternative.

It might be obvious to many but to clarify just in case...

When someone is shooting .32ACP in their Pardini it must be either an SP Bullseye Edition (SPBE) or a Pardini HP.  The .32 conversion will NOT fit the "regular" Pardini SP (Mechanical, etc)

Put another way:
In a Pardini SPBE, you can shoot .22LR or .32 with a conversion.
In a Pardini HP you can shoot .32 or .22LR with a conversion.
In a Pardini SP (Mechanical, Electronic, Rapid Fire, ...) you can ONLY shoot .22

Thanks for clarifying that for us.  The SP that I have is actually a SPBE.

BTW, I was somewhat disappointed with my first outing with the .32 ACP conversion.  The recoil was much more than expected using the Hornady 60 gr. XTP.  I can see why there has been problems already with scope rings not holding.  The gun also holds nowhere near the .22lr zero making a separate receiver at least desirable.

There is a thread about mounting the scope on the barrel/conversion verses the frame. It might have been over on the targettalk site.
