I have a lot of .32 caliber (71 gr.) bullets that need to be reloaded. I want to scrunch them into .32 S&W Long cases but can't find load data for it. I'm using Hodgdon Titegroup, but their website only shows 83 gr. as the lightest one for the Long ctg. The 83 gr. load shows 1.7-2.0 grains of Titegroup. With the 71 gr. bullet being about 15 percent lighter, what adjustments, if any, need to be made to make this work? Finding other powder and/or bullets do not seem to be a viable option at this time. Any thoughts on load data for the lighter bullet? Thanx.

You can always use data for a heavier bullet.
TiteGroup is about the LAST powder I would use. It has a very narrow load range and you had best have a very good scale to verify powder weights.
All I do with .32 S&W Long is load wadcutters.

I like Titegroup and you're right about it having a narrow load range. I also have a good scale and check about every 8-10 loads for consistency.Plus it meters well in my powder measure.
