The .32 Auto is an exceptional round and features prominently in the spectrum of the now incredibly popular small framed personal protection firearms that have been flooding onto the market. It has a storied past with excellent history for providing legitimate stopping power in a small caliber format. The round is generally used as a backup gun or for very discrete carry.
This load is the Federal Premium Hydra-Shok load that offers a 65 grain proven Hydra-Shok projectile in a nickel plated brass case with a Boxer primer behind a lower waste, lower flash powder mix that offers good lower light performance and significant improvement to follow up capabilities for the shooter. It has been clocked at 925 feet per second velocity at the factory and it also produces 123 pound feet of energy delivery, both out of the muzzle.
The quality build and excellent quality control protocols employed by Federal in their plants have led to ultra-high reliability and significant performance with regards to consistency and accuracy. It is these same best practices employed by Federal’s production lines and manufacturing facilities that has landed it, perennially, the contracts for the military production of NATO rifle ammunition. Federal does the job well, and this .32 ACP/.32 Auto load is no exception.
