    Hey guys ( and gals ) I'm starting a thread to get some imput on the .327 magnum. Any one have one ? I have a smith and wesson 632 .327. I love it ! with a 115gr. bullet and 4.5 unqiue it is one or the most accurate guns I have ever shot !

    It is a baby .357 magnum, which has its place.
    Its merits ride on the low recoil, high performance/trajectory and ability to gain an additional round on the cylinder typically.
    If someone thought ammo availability for .357 sig is hard to scare up, this is even a bigger chore for this caliber.

    I have been considering one of these also. Looking forward to some good info.

    Update. Using .32 magnum cases ( easy to find ) and using a 100 gr. SWC behind 5.0 unique is a very good load. Good for plinking and could be pressed into use for self defense.

    I had one... really liked it but the one I had was a Taurus (yuk) and I couldn't stand the gun so much I sold it...even though I really liked the round. If S&W would make an affordable one in 327 I'd buy it... but last time I checked they were all $550+

    If you troll gunbroker like I do ( I have six kids and four tv's LOL ) you can sometimes find a used one at a good price. I have two and the last on I bought was right at $ 525.00 for the gun, shipping and transfer.

    CDNN was selling Taurus .327s for $229 about a month ago. I know it's Taurus, but at that price it would be worth the gamble to me. I see a lot of upside with the .327 and not too much down side other than ammo price and availability. If you hand load then it's cheaper/easier to shoot.

    My only problem with the .327 is that I'm already heavily vested in .357. I just don't want to switch.

    Taurus revolvers aren't as bad as most make them out to be. Pay a lot less for a new revolver, and get a trigger job.
