.32 ACP +P Ammo
75 gr. Hardcast F.N. - (1,150 fps/ M.E. 220 ft. lbs.)
20 Round Box


The 32 ACP auto inhabits a valuable and useful place in our society as a defensive cartridge, mostly because of the easily concealable, tiny pistols chambered for it. HOWEVER, because of the very limited size of the cartridge, it is plagued with limited power and therefore most of the existing ammo in 32 ACP suffers from not being reliable as a man-stopper. We've studied and examined nearly all available 32 ammo and find it wanting as a reliable means of self-defense, especially against a large, drugged up/pain-free, determined attacker.

Here's the problem:

The current 32 ACP frangible ammo delivers a large amount of surface trauma but lacks sufficient penetration. For example, if you shot me or another sane man in the face, with modern, frangible 32 ACP ammo, it would blow off a big portion of my cheek. I would undoubtedly fall to the ground in shock and pain, but I would be very much alive and functional if I could get past the pain, as that frangible bullet would have stopped somewhere in my face, never making it to my brain. However, if you shot a drugged up maniac in the face with that same frangible bullet and blew half his cheek off, he would keep right on coming because he is insane and is not thinking like you or I. Plus, he is likely pain free and fear free and won't know that part of his cheek is missing and if he did know, he would not care. So, whatever 32 ACP ammo you shoot him in the face with, had better go through his face and blow his brain stem out the back of his head because only a CNS (central nervous system) hit with a 32 ACP is going to stop him. Likewise, a torso hit to the sternum needs to penetrate deep enough to blow all the way through his spine in order to shut him down instantly. If you fail to shut him down instantly, you and your loved ones are going to have to find a way to survive while you wait for him to bleed out and pass out. The best chance of survival for you and your loved ones is to shut down the attacker instantly. So, we've designed this 32 ACP+P load to keep you and yours alive under the worst of scenarios.

This 32 ACP+P ammo will better all American made 32 ACP+P ammo by 110 fps to 150 fps with a heavier bullet than any other American made 32 ACP ammo.

Item 30A/20 is a 75gr. HARD cast bullet with a flat nose. It is traveling over 1,000 fps out of my 3.4 inch Beretta Mod. 70. We've used a flash suppressed powder so that you won't be blinded by your own gunfire in the dark. This is significant as well over 90% of all civilian shootings in America occur in low light when the criminal element is out and about. Also, this flat nosed, nonexpanding, hard cast, bullet will penetrate deeply and will do much more damage than the typical round nosed FMJ bullet. Round nosed bullets tend to slip and slide through living tissue, doing little damage as opposed to a flat nosed bullet. The flat nose not only wounds much more than a round nosed bullet, but it actually keeps the penetration straight and thus deeper. Notice the below velocities from my personal 32 ACP pistols. These are real-world guns and thus the speeds are realistic and not the exaggerated speeds you'll see produced from laboratory test barrels. What you see with Buffalo Bore Ammo advertising, is truly what you get in the "real world" where it matters. You can expect 20+ inches of straight-line penetration in flesh and bone with this load. If you are worried about over-penetration with this load, DON'T! You chose to carry a tiny under-powered 32 ACP pistol and the tradeoff is that now you are going to have to stay alive using this pistol and over-penetration will be the least of your worries if you end up needing this gun to save yourself or your family.

➤   1,001 fps -- Berretta Mod. 70, 3-inch bbl.
➤      910 fps -- Kel Tec, 2.5-inch bbl
➤      856 fps -- Seecamp, 2-inch bbl.

The above bullet speeds are 110 fps to 150 fps faster than the Winchester 71 gr. FMJ ammo on the American market. Not only is our bullet heavier than any other American made 32 ACP ammo, but it is moving about 15% to 20% faster - with that heavier bullet!  Feeding and function were flawless in the three test pistols listed above.

Shot this through my 1964 and 1965 Manurhin PP pistols, ammo was very accurate and flawless. Ran 50 Rounds of this through each pistol without issue.

This hardcast .32 ammunition by Buffalo-Bore, really transforms my Colt M-1903 pocket pistol into a 'serious carry gun', when warm
weather precludes me from wearing a heavier-caliber handgun under more-concealable clothing. It's a very accurate and powerful load with a flat nosed bullet which will penetrate any amount of normal clothing to reach vital organs, and that 'flat nose' ensures maximum energy transfer for this sub-caliber, especially when compared to traditional .32 Auto' 'ball' and traditional hollow-points, as offered by a few of the domestic manufacturers.

Since first available, I have used this BB .32 ACP P (75 gr.) load in my Colt M-1903 pistol in .32 ACP and it feeds flawlessly and adds an unsurpassed dimension of power to this small caliber pistol. It also shoots to the same point-of-impact as the standard loads, that I use for practice. (I now need to purchase MORE of this load as soon as it is available again in 2021!)

Another great Buffalo Bore load! Thank you!

Buffalo Bore's HC and TAC-XP 32 acp feeds and fires flawlessly in a Beretta Tomcat.
Alex Kantrowitz on 08/27/2016 08:39am
Good stuff, more accurate than other brands I've shot. Just make sure you or preferably your gunsmith rig your magazine with a flyerwire to prevent rimlock. Happened to me a few times on the Kel Tec P32. My gunsmith pointed out that the vertical magazine column is really bad for rimlock, better an angled feeding system.

Anyway, a nice hot round for those times when even a snubby is too much to conceal.

This ammo fired great out of my KelTec P32. Accurate & reliable. I feel much more confident carrying the little .32 now.

I own a small North American Arms 32acp pistol. I thought I was sacrificing when I switched from 9mm to consistent carry 32acp. Buffalo Bore 32acp p ammo really turned the confidence up a notch! I carry my NAA pistol consistently loaded with Buffalo Bore 32acp p ammo and will NEVER go back! AM

I bought my wife a sub compact 9mm for concealed carry. She thought it was still too heavy and seldom carried it so I reluctantly bought a smaller pistol in .32 ACP. I figured that it would be better for her to carry a .32 all the time instead of the more powerful 9mm some of the time. Now that I ran across this load from Buffalo Bore, I feel more confident that my wife will get the most out of the little .32. I feel that this load is far superior than any other .32 ammo out there. Buffalo Bore did a great job researching and developing this load as they do with all there ammo.

My little 1938 Walther PP is not such a peep squeak mouse gun anymore.. thanx to this load from BuffaloBore. Functions 100%. Groups 9rds into 2in or less at 25yds. Used black tape and taped two, big, 6in thick phone books togather tightly.. and at 15 yds the little 75gr hardcast bullets went clean through. Superior product and service. Best performance available for .32ACP. 220lbs of energy is .38Special territory. BuffaloBore is King. JMH

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
