that is pretty stout for a lil gun, but i'd tinker on it.
Price per box of 20 rounds is 25-30 dollars where I am currently. Thats a pricey practice session.
Performance : The cartridge delivers in excess of 1,222 ft/s (372 m/s) velocity to a 60-grain (3.9 g) proprietary bullet from Hornady. This generates 199 ft·lbf (270 J) of energy from the 2.5" Guardian barrel (1453 ft/s & 287 ft·lbf (389 J) from a 4" test barrel).
According to industry expert Ed Sanow, the 32NAA: produces more velocity, more energy and more stopping power than any conventional jacketed lead hollow point (JHP) .32 ACP, .380 ACP or .380 ACP (+P) with 15% less recoil (Power Factor) than the (+P); penetrates 8.3" of gelatin after passing through four (4) layers of denim, expanding to a .55" mushroom with a retained weight of 100%; and has a Fuller Index of 62% One-Shot Stops (compared to the 380 ACP Federal 90 gr (5.8 g). Hydra-Shok (53%)).
Since this cartridge is based on the .380 ACP which is a rimless design it does not have the possibility of "rim-lock" that can happen with the semi-rimmed .32 ACP. Ballistically it is superior to the .32 ACP, yes at a higher price...
