Thumbs down Reloading for the .32 long

Hi. I have a 31-1 .32 long revolver. Does anyone know where to find bullets for reloading? They are getting very hard to find! I find alot of the Hornady XTP's, but rarely find any other.
Thanks!

Simply "Google" Cast bullets for sale, you will get many hits! Most all commercial casters sell bullets which are appropriate for .32 S&W Long. There are plated, coated and lubricated depending on seller.

Speer still lists their 98gr wadcutter, and Missouri Bullet Co. lists 78gr RN as well. Hornady used to make both w/c and SWC, but they no longer make any non-jacket .32.

Many different cast bullets are readily available. I've used Penn Bullets, Missouri Bullets, and Rim Rock with good results. I've also used swaged hollow base wadcutters from Hornady, Speer, and Lapua (pricey). Midway and Graf's stocks them. I don't see much of a role for jacketed bullets in this caliber.

As mentioned above by the bullet makers or Midway

I guess this explains why I cannot find any 32 WC's from Hornady-- at least I can stop looking and look somewhere else. Too bad, but I am sure there are others that will work just as well.
