    I have a RCBS charge master and itís +/- .2 grains with most pistol powders. I think most use it to throw an undercharge then have a tricker to get it dialed in. Too time consuming for me and small pistol calibers! Those prices seem pretty good after messing with these 32 calibers. LOL
    Also, try using Vihtavuori powders. They're extremely fine grained ball powders, so at small charges they meter better.

    I like dry firing and that takes away a lot of my ammo consumption (and uses up available time to reload) but if someone would rather reload than dry fire then I can see how the math of live fire would be different!
    I'd much rather dryfire than reload but we are probably minority here.

    The Bersa Thunder looks like a Walther PPK for a bargain price. The trigger is awful and recoil is worse than most subcompact 9mm's. But at least it's all steel so when it jams you can throw it at the bad guy and hope for a solid hit.
    When I was just out of college in 1991 I was considering one of those. Then I had a chance to inspect and handle a then current example.
    Got a 1962 East German-made Makarov instead.

    Well, this thread provoked me to get my vz.50 out of the safe and find my remaining stash of S&B .32. Tiny sights, no slide stop, and the double-action trigger pull is like stirring concrete, but that was a fun change of pace from Serious Training Are Serious with the HKs.

    Sounds like a great candidate for a post in the What Did You Shoot Today? thread...

    42 Willys:

    Thanks for the report on the Beretta 70S in 32. I may have to see if I can find one in 32 now that I have sold my 71 to a dear friend.

    I'd rather beat my shin with a baseball bat than reload.

    I want to steal your tagline "Moderately Unfriendly Deeds Done Reasonably Priced" hadn't really noticed it before but laughed pretty hard when I noticed it this morning.

    Got a buddy or two that don't hang out here that will appreciate it as well.

    I will reload for hunting rifle ammunition (only need a few of those at a time, so no big deal), .38 Special for my herd of guns that take it, .357 Magnum for my 1894, and .44 Special for my big Ruger because itís stupid expensive when there is some to buy, often unsuitable for the purpose I need it for, or impossible to get. I *can* load .45ACP, 9mm, or 5.56, only do if I absolutely have to, and I usually will shoot something else instead of loading those anyway.

    I might load some .380 to make it more economical to shoot the G42s, but so far havenít done that much. Iíve never loaded .32 ACP, though I have a P32.
