Sounds like a nice weapon and cartridge combo here is a link to and article on both;

Ordered one from my dealer today. His distributor had two in stock. He got one for me and one for the shelf.
Price was $503.50 with taxes.
Should be here next week. Can't wait.
Got bored real quick with the .380.
Hope it sticks around for awhile. I think it has a place, but whether it will take on or become a wild card is still to come. Please post a range report when you receive it. I went to 4 gun shops yesterday and nobody had one or any ammo.
When Seconds Count, The Cops Are Just Minutes Away!!
can't wait to read your range report. Congratulations !

When S&W comes out with a Airlight/Airweight snubbie version, I will be the first in line to get one.
What fun! I'm really interested in your reports and handloading ventures with that new .327 Magnum.
If I were to choose a revolver in which to house that round for my use I'd love it chambered in a 6-inch Smith & Wesson K-frame target model built along the lines of a K-38 Masterpiece.
I share B McGilvray's view that the 327 Federal cries out for a K-frame/adjustable-sight variant. Having a S&W Model 16-4 x 6" in 32 Mag already, that itch is largely scratched already here. But I neglected to latch onto a Kit Gun/631 when they were still in print, and I hope to see such a model be produced in the new chambering. 4" barrel and adjustable sights would suit me right to the ground.
Cant wait to here the range reports on this one hope it it a success for ruger and federal. looks very interesting.
When the dust settles only the prepared will survive.

remember the only thing common about common sense is that its not that common
Shoot low boys their riding Shetland ponies.
I reload and I would just assume stay with my Sp 101 in 357 mag. I really like that 3 inch gun.Steve48
A guy over on GT runs 32 H&R with a 100gr LSWC in a 4" SP101 to 1400fps with no pressure sign.
From the Gunblast article, looks like AA#9 is a good powder.
I'm waiting on a response from Starline as to whether they will draw brass for it, since they draw for the three other 32's.
The SHOT show is coming up in the next month or so. I can't go this year, too many obligations. If I didn't have my son I'd be there but family comes first.
I'm sure there are announcements to be made at the show, have my ears perked up for 327 Fed Mag stuff.
I'm about to undertake a large .32-20 hand loading extravaganza. Give us a commercial about your .32 bullets, would you? I've got an old Lyman 115 grain mold but generally don't take the time to cast any more. I'll be making loads that will serve in both rifle and revolver.
A price and address wouldn't be amiss.
Two bullets I will be offering to start off with are a 93gr RN:
And a 98gr SWC:
Don't quote me yet, but prices look to be $5-6/100 with no further discounts, plus shipping in a flat rate box.
Attached is a .pdf of my current offerings.
If you want me to cast with your mold, let me know how many bullets you want and I can cast them for you and return the mold with the bullets. I'll work out a price to cast with your mold, depending on number of cavities and how many bullets you want.
Also, slug your bore and let me know what size you need them. I lube with a hard, low smoke lube that I also use personally. I'll be ordering some sizing dies soon so then I can just make one order for the sizes I need.
Very nice. I never knew about a .327 Federal Magnum.
