Re: H&R Model 732 date code and Ammo questions
The 32 shorts will work fine, although they may require a different point of aim because of their different trajectory. As with any cartridge shorter than the one the gun was designed for, extensive firing may build up a ring of fouling than can make chambering the full length round difficult, but proper cleaning will avoid that.
PS - 32 Auto (aka 32 ACP or 7.65mm Browning) may also chamber and may also fire. It should not be used. It is a higher pressure cartridge than the gun was designed for, with an undersized bullet that usually results in poor accuracy. Ignition and extraction will be unreliable because the 32 Auto rim is smaller and thinner than the 32 Long or short rim.
