Pit Bull, I can only relate my experience.

I used Trail Boss when I was shooting 38/357 and because I had it, l looked up 32 loads when I decided to go with 32 caliber. 

So far, I have fired  a couple hundred rounds that all worked fine.  

- Trail Boss - 2.2 - 2.5 grains

- RNFP 115gr

- Starline 32 caliber brass

- Federal small pistol primers

YMMV, but this has worked well for me so far. I'm leaning towards the slightly heavier loads (2.5) to get a better chamber seal. 

Good Luck

Pit Bull,

you didn't specify WHICH .32, but if its for .32 H&R cases, here are my favorites:

 

Load data listed works great for bullet weights 78 gr up to 100 gr.

1. Clean Shot     3.0 - 3.2 gr    Meters better than any powder I've tried and super consistent in its velocities

2. Red Dot         3.0 - 3.2 gr     another great powder

3. Bullseye        2.8 gr              Best accuracy and probably the cleanest.  

4. Titegroup     2.6 gr             If you close your eyes, TiteGroup is as good as the other 3 in all aspects.

 

I've tested Unique (3.0 gr)  and   Universal  (3.0 gr) with good results, BUT..... not nearly as well as I like the other 4 powders

I listed above.

 

Again, these powders and listed charges worked VERY WELL in bullet weights from 78 to 100 grains, in the

32 H&R case.

I use Unique in both .32 H&R mag and .32-20, but I came across an 8# jug of Red Dot not too long back, so with Widder's glowing endorsement, I might have to give it a try.

90-100 grain in .32 H&R mag:

Titegroup 2.7 gr

Reddot 3.2 gr

W-231

I like .32s at around 900 fps to get enough recoil so the hammer rolls back to my thumb.

I’ve been using .32 S&W long brass in my Rugers for about 4 years using the following with very good success. 78 gr coated and lead bullets. Any of these loads have been able to take down shotgun knock down targets as well as plates. They provide good ring on steel for spotters as well.

 

T. B.  1.8 - 2 gr

Win 244   2 - 2.1 gr

Red Dot   2.1 gr

Clays   2.2 gr.

I use 1.9 grs of Clays for a 90 gr bullet

I use 1.9 grs of Clay Dot for 115 gr 32H&R Mag.  Brings most any knockdowns at the old Winter Range and the old EOT shoots.

I have been loading 32 S&W Long with 1.7 of Bullseye and a 100 grain bullet. Grandson has been taking down knockdowns easier than some peoples 38 loads

I've used 2.3 gr Clays and a 100gr bullet in .32 mag case.  I also have used Universal Clays with good results.

Better yet in those small cases, FFFFG.  Plenty of smoke and boom.

w296 is a powder that is more suitable for magnum loads in larger cases.
