I haven't bought factory, read Federal, .32 H&R ammunition in years, but the last batch split length-wise full 20%. Federal said they'd replace the box if I sent them the entire box at my expense...that was the last box of Federal ammunition I bought for over ten years...BTW, the gun was a Smith Model 16-2, and the fired rounds showed little case web expansion....go figger...I now use Starline and have had no problems...Has anyone had recent experience with Federal .32 H&R brass, or for that matter, the .327 brass?
I brought up the question because it's a foregone conclusion that .327 owners are not going to use that hi-pressure round 100 % of the time...
