Been using reloads of some Lapua ammo in .32 S&W Long and searched around for a supplier of just brass and bullets.

I found Mullins Ammo on the web but they don't list their location or a contact point at all. Kinda creepy if you ask me.

Champions Choice has the Lapua bullets but no Lapua brass for sale.

Does anyone have experience with this Mullins outfit or know of another place that has the .32 Lapua brass in stock?

Thanks,
But I already tried that. They are apparently no longer in business or are staying well hidden. I tried the distributor in Canada and they are sending a price list.

Slickpuppy, you're talking about some cartridge I'm not familiar with. Is anything like the .32 French Long? If so, try Ammo Depote, or Old Western Scrounger. Don't have any addresses, but you might try to find them on the internet. There is one other source, but will require some research on my part, will get back to you later.

Hi James,
Forgot about the Scrounger. Usually, they are hit or miss on Lapua brass.

On Target Shooting Supplies in Nova Scotia has them but I really don't know how long shipping will take and I am on a tight time schedule.

.32 S&W Long wadcutter loads are used in Hammerli, Walther, and other target pistols.

Thanks for the assist.

Slickpuppy:

Looked through all my stuff, can't find what I had from another fellow on this thread... his name is Nestor Rivera, he sent me some links on odd ball caliber ammo. Maybe Nestor is looking in and will help you like he did me.
