Default Light (~60gr) 32cal bullets?

Does anyone know of any manufacturer producing lightweight .312-.314 bullets in the 60gr range? HP or SJHP would be especially nice.

Alternatively, does anyone have experience with the 31-060H mold from accurate?

I've got plenty of 78gr coated from Missouri Bullet Co, but the only thing I've seen <70gr are those funky (and expensive) Lehigh Cavitators.

I'm trying to find a good bullet for a 32 S&W Long small game load. Essentially a 22lr replacement with just a little something extra, but not quite 22mag levels. I'll be shooting from a 6" K-frame chambered in .327 and a Henry Big Boy, also chambered in .327.

I've used Hornady 60 grain XTP bullets in both .32 ACP and .32 S&W Long. They are 0.311 diameter JHP's and I've had good results with them. Speer also makes a 60 grain Gold Dot HP, but I've never used it.

Both of these have data listed in their reloading manuals and are currently available in loaded ammunition, but I don't know about the availability as components.

Originally, I thought those ideal, but it seems that Hornady and Speer have stopped production.
