The accuracy, sure functioning and controlled recoil of Winchester’s “White Box” FMJ has made it one of the most sought-after 32 Auto rounds used for target and range shooting.
The Beretta Minx & Jetfire were the first tiny James Bondish pistol made by Beretta. The Minx is almost impossible to find in the USA thanks to the Firearms Act of 1968. Thankfully Beretta saw a market for quality pocket pistols, and started making the Model 21 & 21A Bobcat, and then came big brother, the .32ACP Tomcat 3032, which is a beefed up .25ACP with a bit more mass, better sights, cast trigger guard, chambered in .32ACP. It's bigger than the .25 but it's still tiny enough to slide into a sock along with a spare magazine.
Now imagine 4-6 inch groups from 25 yards with such a tiny pistol. 4 on a really good day. Kind of soccer ball sized groups from 50 yards, very slow fire, steadying off of a post or 8 from a bench rest. That's pretty accurate from a tiny pocket pistol. The only drawback is the Winchester flat tips are hard to unload from the magazines without using a screwdriver to guide them out. The gun has no problems stripping the cartridges out of the magazine, and into the chamber at all.
The pluses are: It is a very faithfully reliable round from a gun usually encrusted with pocket lint, and dirt, and its uncanny accuracy. The 3032 weighs something like 4 oz less than a Glock 43, slim 9mm 6 shot plastic pistol. The Beretta is a whole lot smaller too. Cops used this .32 ACP or the 1908 Colt Hammerless Pocket pistol, for undercover work well into the 1980s. The Colt is a tad bigger, and came in .380 ACP too. I generally don't feel under-gunned with the .32 ACP for general concealed carry. If I am going to a sketchy area at night I will have something bigger, but the 32 is still usable and comforting. I can lose 11 grains & go with hollow points, or mix both types of ammo, which is generally how I load it. I get 8 shots before I have to reload. With the belly band full up I have between 15 and 31 rounds of .32 ACP, and sometimes 13-25 of 9mm, and a Glock 43. The Glock is just a tad to big to slide into a pocket and go. Winchester white box is my staple ammo for my .32ACPs. I just wish it was not so darned expensive!
I love the old Colts, FNs, Rubys, Stars, Remingtons, and other classic .32s including the original Remington R51 designed by John Pedersen. These pistols have an air of class and distinction to them. They can still be quite effective too. These guns all feed the Winchester with no issues, and they all shoot it quite accurately too. Cleaning is minimal. This is some clean burning ammo!
