    very pricey--the gun and the round.

    the lighter S&W's are a handful, the heavier Ruger, not too bad.

    what research have you done so far?
    what is it you expect of this cartrage vs another?

    i have shot it though i do not own one.
    32&R dies can be backed out to make the 327. so if you re-load it can be economical.

    9mm in revolver or semi?

    filling the 'wants' is fun

    but unless you re-load the 327 is very costly to feed. Statline is in production but not yet shipping.
    i have just been using a creative crimp on H&R cases for my friends S&W.

    I have the SP101 in .327 mag. and only use the .327 rounds for self-defense purposes; otherwise, I shoot the .32 H&R mag. or .32 S&W longs in it. The recoil from the full power rds. is not a lot less than the .357's I have shot. The H&R's are fine and the S&W longs are like a .22 out of the SP101. As far as cost, I keep two boxes of the .327 cartridges, but only shoot them about once per month, so the cost isn't that bad. As I always say about my fellow golfers, if you can't afford to lose some golf balls for each round you play, maybe you shouldn't play! If you can't afford the ammo, don't get the gun(and I am just an average retired guy with NOT a lot of $$$$$, but I can afford the ammo I shoot). Good luck. The SP101 in .327 mag. is a great combination.

    I have Taurus 65 in 327 Fed, the recoil is stout with 327 Fed loads but very manageable with full power 32 mag. I have re reamed SP101 in 32 Mag with 4" barrel but did not shot it yet; it should be fun to do it. Ammo is expensive but for SD you don't need much. Brass is very difficult to get (same with 32mad now)

    The nifty thing about it is the sixth round in the SP101. I'd love one, myself. Just don't expect light recoil just because the cartridge is a .32.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Hi sjones;

    I like the notion of the .327 Magnum. It could certainly be a winner for a handloader. I've played with the .32-20 in a revolver for many years. It can be handloaded to about 1300 with a 115 grain bullet. Pretty potent really and it will really penetrate. The .327 Magnum would do anything the .32-20 can do from a handgun. Recoil of such loads is very mild.

    Taurus 905 snubby revolver, or the upcoming (I hope!) Charter Arms 9mm/.380. That way you have only one ammo.

    I just called Starline and they said that they were indeed going to be making .327 Mag in the near future. She said that she thought they were to be manufactured some time this summer. She said that they think they will be in full production and shipping by the end of the year. I had called them about 6 months ago and was told "we cannot keep up with current manufacture, let alone new calibers". Sounds like they are listening to what the people want...finally.
