32 S&W Long Wadcutters look better possibly, made by Sellier & Bellot all brass case with bullet inside the casing. But still no real seal and lead particles.
Is this something you heard or experienced? I shoot 32 longs all the time in mine and they are the most accurate rounds I have fired from mine. I do not get lead shearing and have fired 3 50 round boxes at times and no so called lock up. Not saying it wont happen, but it dont in my copy. I also do the scotch tape trick to get the cases to fill the chamber better. It works perfect. I also shoot 32HR mags from mine with zero problems. I also have a bunch of the 108 grain flat tip fmj and 88 grain fmj rn. Both have alot more power than the privi or fiocchi loads that are barely 32 long power level.
I use mine with the longs for rabbit hunting and have been known to shoot coons with 32HR mags with 85 grain XTPs at 1167fps, about the same power as the Russian surplus fmj stuff.
Its a fun gun for sure and they are cheap. Everyone should own one!
