You can use 32 H&R Magnum, 32 S&W Long and one other round that is not coming to mind right now. Since the 32 Auto does not headspace on the rim, I would not do it. You would have headspace and ejection problems. I don't know if they even have moon clips for 32 Auto.I have been very interested in the .327 mag revo. The only thing that keeps me from going into debt to come up with more gun funds is the skepticism of future availability of ammo. Given the funds, and time to devote, I would buy a couple of 101's in .327, a couple thousand rounds, and reloading dies. The whole concept of the chambering is very intriguing... and I have heard that some adventurous .327 owners have successfully fired .32 acp in their revo's as well. All the more reason to pique my interest, and I hope the chambering becomes a success.

The rim on 32 Auto measures .358 compared to .375. for all the revolver cases. Seems like a lot of potential for ejection problems. What is the case going to headspace on. I would not reccommend it.I don't think moon clips would be necessary for the semi-rimmed 32 acp, but I have no hands on knowledge... just internet info, which needs to be well filtered:smile:
I guess it's from discussions like this that certain ideas pop up......
32 ACP in .327 Federal SP101 - Ruger Forum
.327 Federal Magnum - Glock Talk
I don't have a massive supply of .32 acp that needs to be sent down range, but it's an interesting possibility to have a gun chambered in a "wildcat cartridge" that can handle other commonly available rounds. It could also be that use of the .32 acp, even though it may be possible, could pose a potential hazardous situation. Since the manufacturers don't specifically recommend the .32 acp as a useful source of ammunition it's difficult to tell if that's due to a safety reason, functionality reason, or just considered impractical.
Still an interesting topic to me.
Yes I have one and I like it very much. I have a couple posts on it here already, but in summary:Does anybody have the Ruger SP 101 in this caliber?
