Is this bullet a good candidate for loading the .32 Colt New Police (.32 S&W Long)?

Hello
Some time in the future once I get the dies, cases, etc., I plan on reloading for my Police Positive in .32 New Police. Just wondering if this bullet is a good choice to start with? I'd like to get something that is fairly close to the original weight and bullet profile of the .32 Colt New Police.
Thanks

A FINE LOOKING 32 calber SWC bullet. Were it I, the order would be placed for them in .313"OD, maybe even .314"OD. I'll make a minor wager that is the RCBS 32 100gr SWC bullet or one dang close copy of it.
I run that bullet at 1150fps from 32S&WLONG handloads in large frame 32S&WLONG newer pistols, including those in 32H&RMAG.
IMNHO, the best bullet for regular 32LONG shooting is the WC and none are better than the SPEER 98gr HBWC bullet flying at 850+-fps, give or take 50fps depending upon the desires of your 32 pistol.

I think I will be putting in an order here in a week or so. It might be putting the cart in front of the horse, as I need to get the dies and brass. However, the way things are now with supply and demand, I'm going to pick what I can when and where I can.
Thanks
