CAUTION: The following post includes loading data beyond currently published maximums for this cartridge. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Neither the writer, The Firing Line, nor the staff of TFL assume any liability for any damage or injury resulting from use of this information.

32 S&W Long will blow out the forcing cone of 100 year old Colt revolvers at ~ 30, 000 psi [I have done this ~ 4 times and then made them stronger]
32 S&W Long brass will stick in a thin wall cylinder with star extraction at ~ 45,000 psi.*
32 S&W Long will pierce a small rifle primer at ~ 85,000 psi [based on 6mmBR]
32 S&W Long case head will have short brass life a ~ 90kpsi [I have not done it, and am guessing from similar experiments with 45/70]

32 H&R mag brass and 327F brass should be about the same.

*some math from 1991
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
