Smith Wesson Long

Also known as the .32 Colt New Police, this cartridge was introduced by Smith & Wesson in 1903.

For many years the .32 S&W Long was deemed adequate for police use in the United States and was quite popular with plain-clothesmen.

It has a reputation for excellent accuracy and, up until the 1960s, was widely used for target shooting in the United States. Using wadcutter loads in semiautomatics, the .32 S&W Long is still popular in International Centerfire Competition. For hunting its use should be limited to small game at close range.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .32 S&W Long is 12,000 C.U.P.
