The 32g is basically the euro equivalent to the 410 bore.

I thought the 32 was much closer to a 28 than the 410. One reason they never became very popular.

I think Rich is correct for if my memory serves me correctly the .410 bore is equal to a 67 gauge.

Now you have to hunt for a gun to shoot those shells in.

I believe .410 is also called 12mm, and once was called 36ga.
The 32ga is also called a 14mm

32ga guns are still made in Italy, and not so long ago, in Spain also

Edgar is correct on the 36 gauge being a .410. http://www.fourten.org.uk/36gauge.html
