    Caliber analysis always interests me. Caliber wars don't. You may or may not be interested in the .327 or its little brothers, but take a look at the sources below and analyze whether it's "all bark & no bite."

    Here's a quote from "Shooting Times" (.327 Federal Magnum & Ruger SP01)

    "Subjected to the standard FBI protocol tests for effectiveness through barriers, the 115-grain .327 Magnum load reaches 15 inches in bare gelatin, 16 inches through heavy clothing, 16 inches through plywood, 14.5 inches through wallboard, 13 inches through auto glass, and 20 inches through single-layer vehicle body steel--all with substantial bullet upset ranging from .40 caliber (steel) to .60 caliber (auto glass)."

    Also, take a look at the Brassfetcher penetration tests at .327 Federal Magnum

    The Brassfetcher tests are in line with the manufacturer's statements in Shooting Times (and we all know that doesn't always prove to be the case).

    Bark: yes, indeed. Shoot one & see.
    Bite: does 12-15" penetration and expansion to between .42 and .60 caliber sound like "no bite"?

    In reality, the Ruger SP-101 in .327 Fed Mag is a compact magnum revolver/ammo combination. With this high-pressure ammo, it's got a lot more in common with .38+P and .357 110g than it does with .32 S&W Long factory loads. My biggest objection is the blast, which is the only thing I don't like about the .357, too.
