32 ACP Bullets for ReloadingOn this page, you'll find packages containing only projectiles, used by reloaders who make their own ammunition. For loaded ammo ready to load and fire, please visit our 32 ACP ammunition page.
The 32 ACP (aka 32 Auto) was initially developed by John Browning for the FN M1900 semi-automatic pistol. It became immensely popular right away, and holds the distinction of having more firearms chambered for it than any other cartridge! Today the 32 ACP’s power pales in comparison to other rounds that are more popular for everyday carry such as the 9mm and 40 S&W. That said, the 32 ACP is an excellent choice of cartridge for a backup pistol you might carry on your ankle in in your waistband.
32 ACP bullets typically weigh 60 grains, 65 grains, 71 grains, 73 grains, or 85 grains. Muzzle velocities often range from the high-500s to 700 fps, but may also exceed 1,000 fps. SAAMI considers the 32 Auto’s max pressure 20,500 psi, while the CIP is more generous at 23,000 psi.
Several major manufacturers produce 32 ACP bullets for reloading. Although the 32 ACP’s relatively lightweight and slow JHP may not deliver expansion according to the bullet’s fullest potential, a high quality XTP by Hornady will prove excessively useful during a self-defense scenario. Simple .312 diameter FMJ bullets are ideal for target shooting with your pocket pistol.
