More power, better range and greater availability of weapons and cartridges. Weapons for long cartridges are costlier but easier to dispose off and hold their value on resale.

All the best.

I don't think .32 short revolver ammo is available in India, atleast I have not seen them with any gun dealer.
Are they available ?

Both KF and S&B are available in India.

Both long and short can be used in 0.32 IOFrev or Webley 0.32 rev. It is just that long is slightly longer than short.

Both were developed by S&W and are produced by IOF, there are many imported brand available as s&w.

For your information, there is no difference in size of Anmol and 0.32 IOF rev, but for 2 inch more on the barrel in anmol.

Long cart has more punching power since higher on charge. Thats it. Accuracy is defined by the person shooting.

Cheers...

Wikipedia covers both cartridges and explains the difference between the two.
