    I'm going to open up a can of worms here.

    Allegedly I've read that European "32 Acp" has a different bore diameter than US made "32 ACP".

    I have a box of Serbian made Prvi Partisan 32 Auto. I see bullet diameters of 0.309, 0.309, 0.308. Call it 0.309. Metric this is 7.85mm

    The Remington reloading bullets I measured were 0.311, 0.311 and 0.311 which is 7.9mm


    Does anyone have some history on this round?

    Did you pull the bullets to see what their diameter was inside the case?

    Actual measurements rarely correspond to cartridge names.

    No experience myself but from someone who I enjoy reading:
    "Typical .32 auto pistols vary all over the map with respect to barrel bore and groove dimensions, twist rate and chamber dimensions. Colts, Berettas and Walthers have 16 inch twist, whereas FNs, CZs and Mausers have 10 inch twists. Jacketed bullet diameters of European ammunition average .307-.309, whereas the barrels of Berettas, CZs and Colts often run .310-.311"

    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    It goes for about $9.99 to $12.99 online.

    The newer (2002-) Geco/Ruag ammo seems to be just as good as when it was Geco/Dynamit Nobel/RWS.

    The Schweizers know how to make good ammo.
