    I was going through my recycle brass (22 brass) and noticed a lot of little primer brass. They were 32 Long, 32 Auto, and one slightly bigger then the 22L (my eyes are not that great to see the case stamp but I think it is 25acp). My question is does anyone reload these? I have been selling the 9mm, 40, 45, and 223 when I exceed my requirements. I would hate to see this brass go to waste if it is hard to get.

    I have loaded both 32 ACP and 32 S&W Long - with bullets purchased a while ago, I can reload them cheaper than .22 lr - you're talking somewhere around an average of 2 grains of powder - that's 3500 per pound, but as you mentioned - finding the damn brass is a royal PITA in a pile of other range stuff

    I reload .32 Auto and .32 Long, as well as .32 Mag.

    .32 Auto sure is. It just goes *poof* and it's gone.

    OK, call me crazy, but I load the 25 ACP. At $20+ a box of 50 I can't afford not to. Besides, it's fun to try and get those little guys in and out of the press without smashing your fingers.

    Yep they all are reloaded by me also. Although the 25 auto is not done too often these days as my fingers don't cooperate like I want.:(

    .25 auto sounds like a good reason to teach kids to reload ;) Tiny fingers for working on tiny ammo!

    .32acp is the smallest I load for. I actually think it's easier to load than .30mauser/7.62tok.

    All three are reloaded and you can find buyers for it if you have a large enough number to make the shipping worth it. I have loaded 32 ACP and still load 25 ACP, but don't need any brass myself.

    My 32 S&W revolvers have never had any factory ammo shot in them. All are reloads. I also reload 25 acp but not very much as I don't hardly ever shoot it.

    If anyone would like it, I have 48 pieces of .32 acp brass I'll give away for the cost of shipping.
