FMJ. It's the only ammo in .32 that will get the needed penetration.

Have a Kel-tec 32 and want to use the most effective ammo. Have any ideas.Thanks.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
fiocchi 73gr fmj is the best for the kel tec p32. the problem with hp ammo in the p32 is it will rim lock. now you can stop rim lock by doing the flyer wire mag fix. go over to kel tec org to see more info on the matter.

I trust the tests this guy runs. Read up on what I've tested so far and make some choices to test for yourself.
Pocket Guns and Gear: .32 acp ballistics tests
I don't carry the P32 much anymore now that tiny 9's are available. When I do, its stoked with Fiocchi Extrema JHP. Nothing at all wrong with S&B 73 Grain FMJ for the Winter months.

The .32acp and the .380acp demonstrate near identical ballistics and the only choice that demonstrates adequate penetration is FMJ ball ammo.
