Default Can these be used in .32 ACP?

I use these in my .32 S&W and .32 S&W longs, will these also work for .32 ACP?

slug your barrel to find our what the true diameter is and that will tell you what size to use..... Seems a tab too big might get some leading, but I do not know for sure...

The nominal dia. is .312" (this is for jacketed and cast as per my Lyman 44th edition book). I doubt .001 would cause much of a pressure difference as to be dangerous, but that is just my opinion, you must be the judge of your own pistol and it's safe operation.
You might try a few at the suggested starting charges and compare the results with published data. Anything noticeably different would bear further checking of what is happening. YMMV

I doubt it would either if the bullet is in fact that size.... I would just try it and look for leading, pressure, etc. But, maybe someone with more experience will chime in....

Ive loaded these in .32 S&W long too but i dont have .32acp. I only see .32acp data for 71gr but wouldn't surprise me if you could do a 78gr bullet

Yes you can use one of those. Just hit one with a hammer to bulge the dia to around .320. Grease it up and tap it through the barrel

00 buckshot also works good for .30 cal's

I've decided to just buy some berrys plated .312" dia round nose bullets instead. I'll keep the cast lead bullets for the .32 S&W revolvers
