Federal 32 ACP Ammo – 50 Rounds of 71 Grain FMJ Ammunition
The .32 ACP is most commonly chambered in pocket pistols. And while it was designed for use as a self-defense cartridge, it is considered by some firearms aficionados to be less than ideal for this use. However, it remains popular for its light recoil and ease of concealment.
The history of the .32 Automatic Colt Pistol is a rich one, filled with ups and downs, assassinations, suicides, and even iconic heroes. Its beginnings date back to 1899, when John Browning created his first successful commercial automatic pistol, and its legacy continues through today with most American and all European ammunition companies still manufacturing rounds in .32 caliber ammunition.
The .32 Automatic Colt Pistol, more commonly referred to as the .32 ACP or .32 Auto in the United States and the 7.65mm Browning in Europe, features a lightweight lead bullet that measures between .308 and .3125 inch in a semi-rimmed, straight-walled casing that measures .680 inch in length. At .984, the whole cartridge comes in just under an inch. This low-power ammunition has a wide variety of semi-automatic handguns chambered for it due its low recoil and lightweight concealability.
Since its 100-plus years of popularity, the .32 ACP has been chambered in more handguns than any other cartridge throughout history.
