2.2 Grs of AA #2 and a 71 Gr FMJ @ .955 O.A.L. gave me an Avg 698 FPS at 98 Degrees.
3.2 Grs of AA #2 and a 71 Gr FMJ @ .955 O.A.L. gave me an Avg 736 FPS at 98 Degrees.
Loads were chrono'd from a Seecamp.
I have been using AA #2.
As you can see, these were max. Start lower and work up to them. I don't see why hard cast could not use this data. It should be fine pressure wise. It should take a bit less powder to get to the same velocities.

mata777 you need to buy a couple of reloading manuals. Suggest Lyman #49 and any one from one of the major bullet mfg, or powder mfg.

Thanks for all the replies. Thanks for the suggestion zxcvbob, I do own various manuals but have failed to find a recepie for this load, I've been reloading now for about 3 years.

A 75 grain Flat-Point is a pretty weird bullet for .32 ACP use.
Sounds more likely to be a revolver bullet. You might have feeding problems.
Lyman #49 does list load data for 60 JHP, 71 FMJ, and 75 & 85 grain RN lead bullets.
