    8 Shot .327 Handguns?

    Does anyone have any experience with any of the 8 shot .327 Mag Revolvers out there?

    I believe S&W & Taurus have them and Rugger has a Black Hawk version.

    I am thinking that it would be a great round for walking in the dessert. Also it shoots the .32 H&R Mag and the S&W .32 Long.

    Well, I guess I've been in my cave too much. Learn something every day.

    My Ruger GP100 only holds 7, but it is about perfect otherwise

    The actual name of the cartridge is .327 FEDERAL Magnum. Developed with Ruger to promote their revolvers, with "more shots" than .38 or .44 caliber revolvers.
    Their "Hydra-Shok" load as above is 85 grain bullet at 1400 fps for 370 ft-lbs. of energy. At Midway USA, $18.89/20 on sale. Because no one is buying.

    Midway lists two Federal "practice" loads. Both $27.49/50. And they have two Speer Gold Dot SD loads. Wow, a grand total of FIVE loads to choose from.

    Oh yeah, about those reduced power "old cartridges" you can fire in the .327 Federal Magnum.
    Midway has eight .32 H&R Magnum loads. Five are reduced power "Cowboy Action Shooting" loads. The cheapest SD or practice load is Black Hills. At $35.99/50.
    And they have a better selection of "practice type" ammo in .32 S&W Long. Lead bullets. Cheapest is Prvi Partizan at $15.29/50.

    Uh, what all that means is Federal and Ruger got together to answer a question nobody asked. That is the .327 Federal Magnum.

    Ruger does not have a good record partnering with ammo folks.
    A previous attempt was with Hornady for that gem of a cartridge, the .480 Ruger. Another non-question answered.
    Ruger doesn't even make their Super Redhawk in their own .480 cartridge anymore. Just .44 Magnum and .454 Casull. I have a SRH in the latter.

    It recoils pretty well and it is very noisy compared to a 9mm or 45ACP.
