See page 59 of the March 2014 issue.


Remember you saw it here. Federal and G&A both agree.


IT IS THE .327

    Yeah, my 219 Donaldson Wasp dies and 219 Zipper dies don't get much use any more either! Danged progress.
    I might as well list them on E-Bay with my 30 Herrett dies. :rotflmao:
    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    Ned, FWIW,

    I carry occasionally a S&W 431pd in .32 H&R because it has more punch than a .38 special and 6 shots instead of 5.

    Only the 6.8 SPC has been more poorly marketed than the .327 Federal. The smaller diameter of the .327 Federal case should have resulted in 8 round L frame and 10 round N frame revolvers. That would have been very cool, and those revolvers would have been formidable combat guns. J frame guns sticking with 5 rounds would enjoy far slimmer cylinders and easier concealed carry, or, if keeping the same size, could easily be fitted with 6 chambered cylinders.

    All lost opportunities, because an ammunition maker was too freaking stupid to work more closely with gunmakers, and coordinate the introduction of the new cartridge with a full range of models chambered to fire it.

    Not sure I agree with your example, but, it is 6 rnds near or the equivalent of the most .38 spl, though I have not actually tested then toe to toe.
    I have .327 and .357 and .327 soft points do penetrate the same as some .357, namely the 125 grain.357.

    For Horselips:
    GP 100's are 7 rnds and Blackhawks are 8 and since the .327 has a 45,000 lb chamber pressure that is probably all the rnds that should be in those revolvers.

    Unfortunately, Ruger's revolvers in .327 FM have all been discontinued.

    So have regular Redhawks; it is because they are moving manufacturing

    But I see you are right in step with reality again:
