I found a Bill Davis gun marked .32 PPC on the barrel. I can't find any load data or what the parent cartridge might be. Does anyone know where I could get info on loading for this revolver?

.32 S&W LONG , 98GR LEAD HBWC 1.2GR VV310 BULLSEYE SHOOTERS STILL USE THE .32 S&W LONG FOR CENTERFIRE INDOORS MOSTLY. CHECK THE BULLSEYE PISTOL WEB SITES.

I remember when Bill came up with this idea. Could never get it to shoot like the .38 guns so never got off the ground. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Might turn into a collector item.

For post-war modern solid frame only. I use the Saeco #325 cast of wheelweights and sized .313" in my S&W Model 31 with 4" barrel. This is a fine and accurate small game load.

For modern post-war solid frame only. I use the Hornady 85-gr. XTP bullet in Remington cases in my S&W Model 31 with 4" barrel. This is a full load which approached the .32 H&R Magnum in energy and must not be exceeded. This load also performs well in the Ruger revolvers for the .32 H&R Magnum using .32 S&W Long cases.

4" colt. 64 fps spread. Groups well at 50 feet. Three grains of 231 will keyhole the bullet but it appears quite stable at this level. Bullet is meister rnfp

i KNOW A GUY WHO WON ONE OF THOSE AT THE 4-qUEENS MATCH YEARS AGO WAS A HOOT TO SHOOT, AND REALLY A COOL LITTLE REVOLVER, BUT IT WAS A PAIN GETTING/RELOADING BULLETS.
