.32 H&R Mag. +P Buffalo Bore 130-grain Hard Cast

posted on April 3, 2012

Consistent with its tradition of offering hard-cast revolver loads that drive deep, Buffalo Bore's +P .32 H&R Mag. load does so with gusto. A 130-grain bullet at more than 1,000 fps from a 3-inch barrel is nothing to laugh at, and this bullet will open a modest wound cavity in a block of gelatin, even without expanding. It will also penetrate in excess of 31 inches. If you have a Ruger or Smith & Wesson revolver in .32 H&R Mag. and want a carry load that will penetrate any bad guy you encounter—through and through—this is the way to go.
