.327 federal magnum

Post by Thorfinn » 02 Oct 2008, 18:05

Anyone have one?

I'm kicking around the idea of picking up another Ruger SP101 and the +1 capacity has me considering it :)

I don't know anyone who has one. I did have the GP100 when it first came out on the market. I was very satisfied with that gun. I like Ruger's craftsmanship. They make good guns. Good luck, let us know what you decide.

I currently carry a Ruger Sp101 in .357 and I can honestly say that its my favorite sidearm. I shoot better with it than anything else I own.

The only thing I don't like is that it's a 5 shot. From what I've been reading...the .327 fed mag is ballistically similar and will give me an extra round in the same size pistol.

Ive been interested in it as well. I think the extra round is worth it for the marginal concession in performance. Lets face it, its going to have all the power you need....and sometimes that extra round makes all the differance.

I think it is a nice attempt at a new cartridge. I would get one, but it would be way last on my wish list.
Ammo availability sucks as well because it is new.

Just get a 7 shot taurus in .357.
The trade of is horrible in my opinion Stick with what has been proven all these years. :guns:

I have not shot one personally, but I will soon. One of my friends got one, how I don't know, and I will be visiting him soon enough...yes, just because of the gun. No jk...because of the 408 CheyTac he has too. :laugh:

Cool concept, Dont own one but read a thorough write-up in guns & ammo magazine. They noted similar wound cavity, penetration and accuracy with less recoil and muzzel blast. Any gun chambered in .327 fed mag can also shoot .32 short, .32 long, .32 H&R or any other revolver type .32 round which means cheap practice. I think this would be an ideal personal defense gun where the extra weight, recoil, noise, and flash of .357 mag are not needed.

For me the SP101 in 357mag is one of the finest and strongest pocket revolvers ever made. Plus the price is great also.
