for a keltec,

I would rather stick will ball ammo, i dont figure a 32 has much room to lose penetration to gain a marginal amount of diameter. so i want a good RELIABLE 32 ball.

i was using Winchester whitebox at the range the other day and got 2 light strikes out of 50 rnds, so thats out.

anyone?

S&B - cheap, reliable, warm.
Fiocchi - see above.

Remember to add a mazazine spacer if you choose JHP's because P-32's are particularly susceptible to rim lock.

I shoot dynamit nobel 73 gr fmj in my p-32. They have a little bit more oomph than most of the 60gr bullets I tried, but thier accuracte, and I feel comfortable using them as a self defense round. I havent had a failure in over 500 rounds using these.

I only use ball with KT .32acp.
I use Win White Box with no problems and its low flash...obviously not the case for you.

Fed Classic shot problem free with just a tad more flash.
Ditto with UMC...with even more flash.

Blazer...I had light strikes with it.
One of my KT fed Fiocchi just fine, the other choked on it (I think because it is loaded hotter).
Best

I've been shooting Dynamit Nobel 73 grain ammo in a Savage .32 and a Munurhim PP.
It works well in those guns and might be worth trying.

If you can find it, get RWS/Dynamit-Nobel FMJ. Sometimes AIM Surplus has it for $5.99/box. I find it at shows for $7.50/box. Barring that, I like S&B's FMJ load.

Fiocchi makes a decent .32 ammo, but it smells so freaking bad that it's not even funny.

I prefer the S&B though I've never had any sort of consistant problem in any of my P32s with Winchester White Box...

I keep my P32 loaded with S&Bs during the winter.

S&B vote here as well.

I've had good luck with all of the European .32 ammo. I've used Dynamit-Nobel, S&B, and Fiocchi. All functioned flawlessly. The only jams I've had have been with Winchester white box (Silvertips work fine) and UMC.

SapperLeader, where did you find some dynamite nobel?
