For modern post-war solid frame only. I use the Hornady 85-gr. XTP bullet in Remington cases in my S&W Model 31 with 4" barrel. This is a full load which approached the .32 H&R Magnum in energy and must not be exceeded. This load also performs well in the Ruger revolvers for the .32 H&R Magnum using .32 S&W Long cases.
