For MOST revolvers- no. MOST semi auto rounds are rimless, and most revolver rounds are rimmed. There can also be a difference in energy- .32 auto is much hotter than .32 S&W ammo.

HOWEVER- there ARE revolvers that were made to use an auto pistol cartridge, such as 9mm Parabellum. There were reports of problems, not highly popular. Some, such as the .45 Colt revolver could be adapted to .45 ACP ammo using a "moon clip" that held 3 of the rimless cartridges.

So it really depends on WHICH revolver and WHICH cartridge.
