I see ads for .32 target wadcutter bullets from time to time. What shooting sport are these used in? It seems like an economical round to reload. Does Smith and Wesson make a target model in this caliber? It seems like it would be a plesant round to shoot a lot in practice.

You find the .32's in such uns as the Benelli MP models and many of the other higher level European target /match pistols. Pardini is another I know makes them.

...was a popular target round. S&W used to offer a series of six-inch K-frame revolvers, chambered in .22 LR, .32 S&W Long and .38 Special, with all three guns weighing the same when fully loaded. The .32 S&W Long met the requirements of being centerfire but, due to low recoil, offered faster recovery during timed fire stages than larger cartridges (such as the .38 Special). The round enjoyed such a good reputation for accuracy that several European firearm manufacturers (some of which are cited above) went to the added effort of figuring out how to get the rimmed cartridge to feed reliably in autoloading pistols.
