    Thanks Papa. I've been tracking Gold Dot, which hasn't reappeared in 32 yet so this is an option. I have several hundred GD now but want a lot more for whoever ends up with this when I'm gone.

    Gold Dot and PMC both work well in mine. I just found a semi-local shop with Buffalo Bore in stock so tomorrow we will see if that flies as well.

    If penetration is your main concern, I would look at Fiocchi ball ammo. .32s do not expand well in any ballistic test I have been able to find. The only rounds that penetrate even near 13 in ballistic gel are ball. But you need a flat tipped ball to shoot in the seecamp. I realize that gel tests are not real life but if a round wont penetrate and wont expand in a perfect medium what makes some people believe they will be magical in a human body?

    No one seriously expects significant expansion. As for penetration, the Seecamp is an eyeball socket/under the chin gun. Buffalo Bore will likely get you inside at longer distances, but at contact distances anything on the short list should do fine.

    Speer Gold Dot 60gr JHP has been flawless for me.

    Seecamp’s webpage also shows PMC BRONZE 60gr JHP is comparible.

    No pocket pistol is a front line weapon. The J Frame extends the limit in skilled hands...but not by much. These pistols are for sticking into an eye socket, under a chin, or into a ball sack and pressing the trigger. I shake my head in wonder when people discuss "groups" and "zero" with Seecamps and Tomcats, and such. Missing the point of the weapon they are.

    Keep in mind that all of the recommended ammo by Seecamp use the 60 gr JHP bullets. A lot has to do with the cartridge length.

    The Buffalo Bore 32 ACP +P uses a 75gr Hard Cast bullet. This cartridge might be too long for the Seecamp and may not feed correctly.

    Damn, I thought the target was back of the head or contact into the back.

    I think of them best used in the way the counter man in the Twitter video mentioned elsewhere used his pistol....near-contact distance and multiple rounds in the head.
