I'm going to be starting to reload .32acp in the next few weeks. Does anybody have any words of wisdom? Any quirks I need to know about? Best powders?
I'll be loading for a brand new Walther PPK/s. Thanks for any info.

The american cases for the 32 are thinner and will take less pressure. The Foicchi and Geco will take the pressure better. The Geco cases had tight primer holes and I had to file my depriming pin down a little.
Just like any other caliber there are likes and dislikes for powder and bullets to match the barrel of your gun.
Have fun.

Tim. Try Winchesters W-231, or Alliants Bullseye.
