Have a Dillon Square Deal B for my .45 reloads - looking for feedback on using it for .32 SW Long reloads - any feedback is appreciated

Use the SDB for 32  here.  No complaints

I typically run Hornady LNL AP presses but read the 32 shell plate for the Hornady didn't work well plus the cost of the extra powder measure pushed me toward the SDB dedicated the 32 SWL. Works well. Honestly they're good presses but I still prefer the Hornady LNL AP for the majority of my reloading, more versatile, more open design and really like the LNL bushing system. So I use my 2 Hornady presses for 45, 38sp and 9mm then the SDB for 32 SWL.

Google 32 loads here...lots of info. Dies and expander plugs can be too small leading to undersized bullets and poor accuracy

I’m not familiar with the SD, I use Dillon 550s?  Does the SD use the same dies? If so, I would definitely recommend the ones from Photo Escape.

Loading 32l can be tricky (exasperating). If you are new to reloading this caliber I would suggest reading the numerous thread on this forum re: which cases, bullets, and powder give good results.  All are NOT created equal. It’s a wonderful caliber, may I ask what gun you will be using?

Thank you all for the feedback, I am using a Pardini HP Don Nygord that
I purchased from one of the shooters at the local bullseye range along with enough reloaded ammo to start the training process - really like it - I have all the reload info that he used - so far it works great with bearcreek bullets .314
I now have to setup a press to reload my own ammo

SDB uses its own dies only - so no choices - Pardini HP second gen

I have the "quick change" to convert to .45, .38/.357, .38 super and .32 S&W long.  Takes less than 10 minutes for the setup and maybe another 10 or 15 to get the right powder measure.  You'll need the extra small powder measure or you'll need to modify the small powder measure to get down to 1.6 or 1.7 grains for the 32
