I have a WW2 vintage PPK from my fathers travels during the war and would like to take the pistol to the range to confirm operation, etc..

It's a 7.65mm, what suggestions might others have regarding a suitable ammo to use?

The pistol has been cleaned and lubed, the bore looks excellent and it seems to function properly with respect to safeties, magazine release, etc.

To just function check, I'd just buy some cheap Winchester white box or Federal American Eagle ball ammo.

If you want to use the gun for self-defense, then I would suggest you buy Cor-bon, Hydra-shoks, and some other high quality ammo and then test it out to make sure it is 100% reliable.

I would recommend either Sellier & Berloit or Dynomite Nobel FMJ. Both, if I recall correctly, are labelled as 7.65mm Browning instead of .32 ACP. Both are a good value.

For some reason I have had some unreliable functioning with .32 ACP labelled ammo.
