    Might find it under 7.62 French Long

    These people make new 7.62 French Long ammo from scratch. I would hope they might help you with load data. Or at least brass, maybe.

    Thanks ants, now I've found both the brass, and the loaded ammo, at $60.00 for fifty rounds [!]...but still no load data...

    If you can find a copy of "Cartridges of the World" you may find some load data there. Check you public library.

    I have a few rounds I can copy for OAL, and I can work up a load by starting somewhere between .32acp and .32 H&R Mag, carefully checking for signs of pressure, but I can't help but feel someone somewhere has already done this,and I'm duplicating effort better expended in loading more ammo...

    A guy over at 1911Forum was asking the same thing. See if you can find his thread. Maybe he has load data.

    Are you talking about the 7.65 MAS? It's a rimless cartridge for1935A and 35S pistols.

    If so:
    Lyman #311252 sized .309" about 77 grains weight depending on alloy.
    3.6gr Unique
    .780" case length
    1.19" OAL
    SP Primer
    Start with 3.1 gr
