    Compared to my 47th edition, published in '95, the current manual omits a 72gr (#311252). All other data is completely unchanged.
    Taking a break from social media.

    I'll post the page from the second edition after work.

    Gut feeling is those could be improved a fair bit with a plain base coated cast or hardcast bullet, since the data listed is for the soft HBWC.

    I just set up my 550 for 32 S&W Long. Since the reason I'm going to the 432/632 is for less recoil, I will be mostly shooting 32 Long in it.

    I'm loading a coated 100 grain SWC over a starting load of Bullseye. I've only fired a few rounds to test. Looks like it goes about 680 fps in an old I-Frame.

    During my research, I wandered over to the Bullseye Forum where they're shooting 32 S&W Long out of Bullseye guns and getting astounding groups at 50 yards.

    I'll probably got some of @Lost River's wadcutters for carry.

    I concur. This data will give me a great place to start.

    Here is data from Reload Ammo (formerly MD Smith Reloading Pages):

    98 Grain HBWC lead (.314″)

    Bullseye 2.3 gr. 810 (max)
    Unique 4.0 gr. 998 (max)

    I haven't bought one of the new UC guns (yet!), but I have three 32 revolvers, the 2" LCR in 327, an older 432, and a 3" 327 TORO from Taurus. I worked some loads up and did some chrono, gel, and accuracy testing with all three guns with 32 long, 32 H&R, and (for the LCR and Taurus) 327 fed mag loads. I didn't have my H110 with me at the time, so the 327 loads should not be considered "full power" as I was using titegroup. I used both 85 grain Hornady XTPs and a 100 grain flat point bullet that I stocked up on through american reloading years ago. I will need to compile the data, but I'll put it in here as soon as I have it.

    Even though I have a number of other powders that are better know for revolver loads, I have actually found that Titegroup has been a great option in the 32 guns due to the relative small volume. When shooting jacketed bullets the smoke is a nono-issue. I will be working up loads for a coated wadcutter in the next couple of weeks and perhaps I'll have to re-consider my powder selection for those bullets, but for the 7-8k of the 100 grain jacketed bullets I'll likely use Titegroup for most of them.
