    The 32 H&R Magnum is a very soft shooting round, indeed. I keep a Ruger SP101 (4” barreled) 327 Fed loaded with 32Mag for the wife at the house. Recoil barely registers with it.

    Exactly! This is the marketing question du jour!

    Ha ha. Yep. But if you’re going to OWB Carry like the guy in the video an extra half inch cylinder/barrel would be no big deal.

    Hate to break it to CA but S&W came out with an 8 round 357 Mag a decade or so ago.

    The 327 Mag is the up and coming round in its niche. I would have shot for the moon and produced this in 327 Mag so you get the versatility of 32 Mag, 32 S&W Long, 32Auto and 32 S&W original (short). But that’s just me.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    The .327 Federal Magnum is rated for 45,000 psi, the H&R Magnum is only rated for 21,000 psi. Most modern .32 H&R Magnum revolvers can handle at least 25,000 psi which is a good middle ground for a Self Defense gun. The max power .327 Fed Mag is a flame belching, concussive bomb out of anything under 5". If you download to something with low recoil but still able to do the job, you get a large Extreme Spread (ES). The .32 H&R Mag, on the other hand will get consistent low ES and better accuracy, low flash and if you keep it subsonic, not that loud and no concussion inside a house/building/structure. Even in my 5.5" barrel Ruger Single Seven, I usually shoot .32 H&R Mag, just because I don't always like to shoot the fire breathing hyper sonic dragon.
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    The only revolver I own is a S&W Model 686 (.357). Not a carry gun. This might be a good addition.

    Interesting. I don't find the 327 Fed to be a concussive, flame belching dragon at all. I haven't fired one at night, but I don't routinely practice night fire. The recoil is negligible in a 3 inch SP101. I'll buy the pressure argument, though, from a Charter, but I wouldn't pay 500 bucks for one.

    Most commercial loads for the .327 Fed Mag are not SAMMI max pressure loads, but considerably lower.

    Here is a load for a Ruger Single Seven 7.5" barrel. Load is from an article in Handloader magazine FEB 2015. 13.3 grains of Accurate #9, OAL of 1.455", pushing a 100 grain XTP to 1,551 fps. Probably won't get that much velocity out of your SP101, but something tells me it will provide spectacular fireworks at night.

    Don’t disagree with the numbers. And, yep, there is a noticeable increase in recoil going from 32 Mag to 327 Mag - but not enough for me to ever buy a gun which EXCLUDES possibility of ever shooting a higher powered round, readily available on the market, with it. Like I said, it may be just me. I like as much diversity as I can get.

    So you would never buy a 38 Special?

    I try the variety or diversity thing, too. Most of my revolvers are 357, but I have a few 38's jus because. I have a very nice blued pre-lock Ladysmith in 38. In general, though, I'm the multi-barrel pistol guy. P227 in 40, 357 and 9mm, like that. If I get a bargain in 9mm, that's great, but my druthers is multi caliber.
