This may be a somewhat ignorant question, but what is the advantage of the 32 ACP compared to the 32 S&W long wadcutter? Is it cost, availability of brass, or some other factor? Part of reason for my query, it it seems most 32 ACP barrels are 0.311" diameter and most 32 S&W long barrels are close to 0.313". It seems that Pardini (who have done this a while) took a 32 S&W long barrel (0.313" diameter) and rechambered it for 32 ACP. I expect there is a reason. Maybe the 32 ACP has a better ballistics coefficient (i.e bucks the wind better)?

Greetings,

The 32 ACP, as offered by PardiniUSA, will shoot inside the ten-ring with high X-counts at 50 yards using the Hornady jacketed 60 grain XTP bullet.

The 32 S&W Long WadCutter was able to do this with the H&N 100 grain HBWC bullet, as well.

The H&N bullet is no longer available.

Also, I am told that the felt recoil of the 32 ACP is much less than the WadCutter pistol.

Remember, it's only money. Go ahead and get one.

Cheers,

Dave
