This is some weird looking ammo.  Never seen wadcutters before

Never seen wadcutters before, or never seen them in .32 Long before? They used to be common for target shooting.

Don't shoot them. There's some Value to them amongst the Ammo Collectors.

They're .32 Long, but no, I've never seen wadcutters in ANY caliber before.

Les - It's ammo. Why not shoot it?

.32 wadcutters had some popularity for the "any centerfire" stage in competition target matches. Maybe not so much today, as the trend seems to be toward "practical" (i.e., simulated combat) conditions, which requires 9mm or larger. And police departments used to use 148-grain .38 wadcutters for training, as they shot to the same point of aim as the then-common 158-grain duty ammunition. Now, because of legal liability, police usually train and qualify with the same loads carried on duty.

I agree, wadcutters are perfectly fine to use at the range, particularly for the newbie.
