    I need to get some more .32 S&W-L ammunition.
    Has anybody had any experience with either company's wadcutter ammo?
    I've heard that the Fiocchi ammo is quite mild and S&B has hard primers.

    Fiocchi is a bit stronger than S&B.

    Federal RN .32 Longs are the only ones more powerful than the Fiocchi in this caliber.* Usually, Fiocchi is the most hotly loaded of the the name-brand cheaper stuff in pretty much any other caliber. It's sad; the big American companies make weak cheap-o ammo. I like Fiocchi.

    * That I've seen, anyway....

    I just got done shooting those and found them all keyholing along with the Prvi Partison LRN I was shooting. Not to mention the Federal LRN tend to spit in my old .32. They are fun to watch the flash from the cylinder gap though. Wadcutters have never keyholed for me. My gun is primer sensitive, Magtech was awful stuff for it and I even had a Federal wadcutter fail to ignite.

    The same could be said for a few beer companies :neener:

    I like Cheaper than Dirt.

    Went for the Fiocchi, always had great quality for the price.

    I shoot Fiocchi .32 ammo in my Beretta 1934, FMJ, never had a dud yet. I can't get it in wadcutters.
