Use .32S&W long cases for .32Short loads?
I have two 1890's era revolvers in .32, one a Forehand Arms much discussed with Hammerslagger and a H&R six shot top break which I never posted about as I saw a post about the exact same gun, single '87 pat. date, same mrkngs. etc. same prefix letter and SN within a hundred or so! Standard S&W caliber guns have 15/16(?)" cylinders, both mine have 1 1/4" cylinders. I learned via these Forums they were chambered for a loooong gone .32 H&R Long ctdg. but now suitable only for .32 short. My question: Since the .32 S&W Long case fits these guns perfectly, can I use those cases and just load appropriate .32short loads or .32H&R equivalents (whatever they are) either in smokeless or black pwdr.? Reason I ask is I have a nice bunch of .32S&W Long cases but only a precious few .32S&W(short) and I can get nice little cast bullets to load. I don't want to pay the outrageous prices for current .32S&W ammo - and - that may be a bit hot for these old guns?
