    Ok, so I know you can use shorter dies to load longer ctgs. 38spl dies can load 357Mag, 40S&W dies can load 10mm Auto. People are using 32S&W Long dies for their 32 H&R Mag reloading, can the 32S&W Long dies also be used for .327F-Mag or would I need 32H&R Mag dies for .327F-Mag.? Thanks.

    Did a google and from what I saw you can use 32S&W Long dies for all 3 ctgs. :cool:
    A ctg is NEVER dead as long as you can get loading components for it.

    SHUCKS, with a set of RCBS 32ACP steel dies I have loaded 32ACP, 32S&W, 32S&W LONG, and 32H&RMAG. For the 327 it will still be but a matter of a few die adjustments.

    So 32acp dies can load any 32 ctg.? Guess you just need to swap shell holders since the acp is different from the rimmed ctgs. like the 32 S&W Long and 32 H&R Mag. Interesting, may just get a set of 32acp dies then instead of 32S&W Long dies. Thanks.

    Do revolver cartridges not need full length resizing? I wouldn't think the shorter cartridge dies have enough length to them to accommodate much longer cartridges.
