What dies for 32ACP in a Dillon 550?

Post by gregbenner on 7/10/2017, 5:27 pm

I am considering a 32 ACP conversion for my Pardini SP.  I load with a Dillon 550, and they don't sell dies for that caliber. I presume I can purchase other brands of dies, but not sure what brand or precisely what to ask for.  The 550 uses a 4 stage progressive system. Hoping someone with a 550 might be able to help?

thx

gregbenner, I use a 550B and reload .32 Auto (ACP).  The sizing die is Hornady.  The powder die is Dillon and the powder funnel inside the powder die is labeled S.  The seating die is Hornady with the Hornday micrometer. I had to buy the seating die and micrometer separately.  The crimp die is Redding.  Hope this helps.

Thx j2s!  I already have the 32 long powder funnel die, is that the one you have?  Which shell plate, the 32 long?

gregbenner, I only use Starline brass, and yes the Starline link you show is the brass I use.  My understanding of Auto vs ACP is Auto is the cartridge, such as .45 Auto and ACP is the gun, as in .45 ACP (automatic Colt pistol).

Let me check on shell plate.

I am looking at my Dillon caliber conversion kit box.  It says 32ACP/32SH.  The SH stands for Short, as in 32 Short [Colt].  The Dillon stock number is 20160.

p.s. The appropriate powder funnel comes with the caliber conversion kit.
