I think...something like 7.65 x 22...right? Whatcha shooting it in? A pre-WWII French pistol? Seen pics of them, never up close. Good luck with it. A real piece of European history.

A buddy of mine has one. Found a guy that makes the cartridge from 32 S&W Long. Figure if my freind buys a box, I can use my dies for 32 S&W long and apporiate reloading data to reload for it. Yes, the pistol is I beleive a 35 French MAS pistol. pretty slick gun, if it was in 9mm Luger.

That's one I've never messed with. I do recall Century imported some several years back. Donnelly does say the .32 S&W can be used, turn off the rim, and cut a new extractor groove. Looks like a fairly simple conversion. Bullet diameter is given as .309, looks like any lead bullet fro the .32 ACP could be used. Only data given is 2.1 grains of Bullseye with a 85 grain bullet for about 1000 FPS. I would guess any .32 ACP data could be used as a starting point, and be worked up from there. .32 S&W dies should work, if ,.32 ACP dies should, even if they have to be adjusted for the longer case.
