.32 Caliber

This is one of the first cases we made at RCC Brass™ for one of my friends. Her father had an old .32 Long Colt pistol she wanted to shoot. Another friend of mine, and great gunsmith, made sure the pistol was sage to shoot and loaded the case we made for her. As a surprise to her, we put her dad’s name on the headstamp and now she her dad’s pistol and ammo.

The introduction of the British .320 Revolver cartridge in 1870 spurred the development of the .32 caliber pistol. The .32 Long Colt was introduced, by Colt, in their New Line revolvers. The New Line revolvers are a single action pocket revolver and were one of their first rear loading metallic cartridge guns offered by Colt. Smith & Wesson introduced their .32 S&W in 1878 and it still remains a popular caliber today.
