I've got a WW2 era Walther model PP in 32 ACP that is in great condition. What I am wondering is if it is safe to shoot Cor Bon 60gr. JHP ammo in it? Also will it feed reliably?

I see no reason not to IF the pistol in good shape I would spend a few $ for a new recoil spring as the other is getting old. CorBon ammo is kept in SAMMI specs. I don't belive it will feed the reliabilty as was made during times of ball only. But never know. I got a USGI,1941 Colt that I shot for years Installed new barrell few years back because other worn out Rest of gun 1941 even use for CCW now and then.:blues:

See if you can find out from Cor-Bon what the CUP pressures are at a given bbl. length for that caliber. Then see if you find what the max pressures are for your year of gun.

Fatcory ammo is usually loaded pretty close to max on the "hottness" scale. The powder made back in WWII wasn't as hot as what is produced today weight for weight.
