75 gr. RN lead:

Bullseye 1.5gr-2.0gr

Unique 1.8gr-2.6gr

Green Dot 1.6gr-2.4gr

Titegroup 1.8gr-2.0gr



That should get you to where you want to be. As always, start low and work your way up. Happy reloading!!

You are very welcome.

The info came directly from:

Lyman 4th Edition
Cast Bullet Handbook

A great resource for anyone shooting cast bullets. Also quite good for the casters(which I am not one). Check it out!!

AS for load data I have several books that have plenty of loads for all my other pistols .It is very limited when it comes to 32 acp ..If I am reloading pistol bullets I am almost always using cast bullets and I will need to get a good cast bullet book .Hey doc how much 32 acp data does the lyman 4th have in it .

Lymans Cast Bullet Reloading manual doesn't have a ton of reloading data on the 32 ACP round(like many other manuals), but more than most. It list loading data for 75gr and 85gr LRN bullets with 7-11 different powders for each bullet. This is one of the best manuals available for the caster, and shooter of cast bullets....in my opinion.

None of my reloading manuals offer an exhausting amount of reloading data for 32ACP, as this is not a mainstream reloaded cartridge.......sort of like the 25Auto and 30 Luger(which I load).

Let us know how your new loads work out. I have found that for the small pistol brass, that a fast powder works out best for me. YMMV

I like 2.2 gr Titegroup, with the Lyman cast 77 gr RN, in my HSC Mauser. Low 900's velocity. Shoots to point of aim. As with any load data, start low and work up.
