About 1300 fps, depending on barrel length, bullet weight, ect - but IDK what .32 auto is off the top of my head.

According to Wikipedia (yes I know, not the most reliable, but it's a one stop shop):

.32 ACP (max press. 20,500 psi) - 65 gr JHP @ 925 f/s, 123 ft-lbs.
.30 Super Carry (max press. 45,000 psi) - 100 gr HST @ 1,250 f/s, 347 ft-lbs.

I can't give a more apples to apples comparison because I don't see data for similar bullet weights. Clearly .32 ACP isn't moving very fast, even with a much lighter bullet.

For comparison...

.32 French Long (max press. ?) - 77 gr FMJ @ 1,132 f/s, 219 ft-lbs.

Side note to my above... I was at a big box sporting goods store and .30 Super Carry was $29.99/50 and .380 ACP was $29.99/50. .30 Super Carry seems like a bargain with current.32 ACP/.380 ACP prices. Meanwhile brass cased 9mm Luger is $17.99-$19.99 per box all day long.
