    Berettaprofessor, 132 was already guessed earlier (post #14), maybe make it 131 or 133 or something else.

    82 is my guess.

    Don’t need the dies though.
    I already have .32acp AND .32S&WL Dies.
    The .32s&w dies are marginally larger than .32acp dies. .312-.314” vs .308-.311” .
    Also, .32acp has a taper crimp seater/crimp die. The .32S&WL set has a roll seater/crimper.

    57 and I just bought a Zastava Model 70 .32 ACP
    It will play nicely with my other Zastavas, a Model 70A(9mm) and my M57 (7,62×25).

    This'll give me six 32 caliber guns.
    32 S&W Long, 32 H&R, two 327s and now two 32ACPs

    Life's good. :p

    Hi, looking for the winner now.
    Tuesday morning I decided to get a flu shot, and since I was there a Shingles shot as well. (over 60 and had chickpox as a kid)
    Dr said it was ok to get both. Short version of story, not a good idea to get both at the same time IMO.
    Back with the winner shortly...

    Recounted bullets to verify the count.
    :eek: have a problem, it looks like a couple 9mm bullets got in the box.
    So I guess the question is do I count them or not.
    The problem is different people will win depending on if I count them.
    I will wait till this afternoon to see what members think then determine a winner.


    Since I said how many bullets are there not how many .32s I feel like I should count them, but since I was talking about .32s I don't know if it is really fair to count them.

    Not a good idea like you found out.

    I don't take the flu shot. Every time I do I get sick.

    The shingles is bad stuff. I had a real bad case of it in 2013. 6 mo later I was till dealing with the pain.

    OK, the general theme seems to be to count them so the winner is BerettaProfessor.
    Actual count was 134 with the stray boy 9mms that managed to sneak in the box with the sexy little 32s.....
    garandsrus would have been closest if I didn't count the strays, will work out a PIF for him since I sort of messed up.

    Thanks to everybody for joining in, hope it was fun.

    PS
    (next time I will try not to mess up and let any strays sneak in)
