THere is a huge difference in European CIP spec 7.65Br and USA SAAMI 32ACP spec ammo.
CIP loads their 7.65Br to 26,000psi, SAAMI limits it to 21,000psi. The Fiocchi and S&B is a good bit warmer than anything made in the USA.
For pistol calibers I rarely shoot anything made in the USA. SAAMI spec ammo is just too weak. I been shooting alot of RWS 9x19mm 124 grain lately and if it were loaded in the USA it would be wearing a +P+ on the box. It is very clear the ammo is loaded to top end CIP spec. Fiocchi and S&B 32ACP ejects twice as far from my P32 than SAAMI spec ammo and you notice it when you fire it.
The PPU that is made in Serbia SHOULD be loaded to CIP spec but it dont even meet SAAMI specs. The PPU 32ACP is a joke. Only thing I can think of it might be good for is a conversion cylinder in a Nagant revolver or shooting from a 32SW long or 32 H&R mag gun. It is worthless in an autoloader. I cannt even imagine what shooting it in a CZ83 would be like with its massive slide for that caliber.
Get it for a 22lrish load from a revolver if you want. DO not shoot it in a autoloder. Just a heads up for all my buds here.......
