Shouldn't only pistols use this cartridge, since it is in fact a pistol cartridge? No hunting rifle uses pistol cartridges! Photonlust 03:48, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

I would have assumed it was a .32 caliber rifle round (perhaps a 8mm Mauser or something). There are rifles that fire pistol ammunition (such as lever-action .44 magnum or semi-automatic 9mm or 10mm rifles) and can be used to hunt depending on the game, but they generally have less range and power compared to other cartridges. I think the creators just screwed up their cartridge/caliber designations again. --Galba 23:33, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

According to the article, the Pip-Boy image of the .32 caliber round is supposed to resemble the .32 Winchester Centerfire round but that cartridge is straight and rimmed, while the one in the Pip-boy is slightly bottlenecked and rimless. But the picture on the ingame .32 ammo box model is probably the .32 S&W. I did however find another type of .32 cartridge that more likely resembled the one in the Pip-boy: The .32 NAA cartridge, which were both slightly bottlenecked and rimless. Do a google search for the .32 NAA you should find a Guns & Ammo article about the cartridge along with pictures of it. 18:28, 25 November 2008 (UTC)Turbogurra

I'm Seconding this opinion in that the Pipboy image resembles the .32 North American Arms. The case length, shoulder, body taper, rim thickness and extractor groove all share a resemblence between the Pipboy image and that of the .32 NAA with the exception of the neck length appearing slightly longer in the Pipboy image. The bullet even resembles the Hornady 85gr XTP used in the .32 Cor-Bon loads. 05:08, May 4, 2010 (UTC)Mitya

World model? Edit

Is it just me, or is the world model of the .32 round a very wonky box? Nitty 20:54, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

-The older ammo boxes, such as for .32 S&W were typically cardboard, or tins. It is kinda wonky, though. ← 04:09, November 18, 2009 (UTC)≥±≈

Should have explained. The world model doesn't sit well at angles. The top of the tin clips through walls and things. Nitty 04:20, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
