I have a RG Model 31 snubnose in 32 S&W Long Caliber. I would like to reduce the recoil. Can I just use the 32 S&W cartridge instead of the 32 S&W Long Cratridge?

A .32 S&W Long out of a short barrel offers very little power. I can not imagine a 98 grn. .32 Long creating that much recoil? And yes you can fire the .32 S&W for even less power in your short barreled handgun. Also consider those budget handguns usually have too much cylinder gap and gas loss is high as well.

Yes you can use the shorts. Probably safer to use the shorts in that gun too.

Thanks for the info and the great advice and explanation.
Have a Happy New Year.
