.32 Caliber Iver Johnson-How hard will a .32 caliber Iver Johnson revolver shoot? How many inches of hard pine will the .32 caliber shoot through with the 3-inch barrel, with .32 Smith and Wesson cartridges and the .32 Smith and Wesson Long?
The .32 Smith and Wesson cartridge, fired from a Smith and Wesson revolver, gives a penetration of three 7/8 inch pine boards. The .32 Smith and Wesson Long cartridge gives a penetration of five and a half pine boards. The Iver Johnson may give a trifle less penetration than the Smith and Wesson, for the latter is an arm of exceptionally fine workmanship and there is less escape of gas between the cylinder and barrel than in the cheaper weapons. As far as known to the writer the Iver Johnson is not made for the .32 Smith and Wesson Long cartridge.
