I have been away for quite a while but I found my way back.

Yesterday i I traded my way into a m327b2 that’s nice. Used but nice. It came with a few boxes of ammo...9 boxes of hydrashoks and 10 boxes of fed AE. I need some help finding serviceable grips though, the rubber boot grips gotta go. I require pretty wood. I will try to post a photo. Anybody got a good source for grips that at least mimic the old school square butt style grips?

Mans by the way I traded I feel like I traded for the ammo and essentially got the gun for free.

Its nice to have a bull on a wheelgun again... maybe the Smiffs won’t pick on it too much.

I got the empty brass from the previous owner put away too. 250 pieces of brass, all 327fed. I need to start looking for reloading recipes. My books are all too old to list the 327. With the high pressure I’m thinking AA7 or AA9 will probably be nice.

good thing I already stock 32acp, 32sw, 32 long, and have brass for 32hr although I never owned one. Stupimlico, I’m going to spend some quality time with a Lee Classic Cast I got from somebody online a few years ago...

WK, looks like a beauty. Had been in the market for one awhile back so I can imagine how exciting it is to score one. Lookin' fwd to you posting a pic when you find the right wood grips.

Nice package deal. Those 100gr AE are some pretty hot cartridges.

My 327B2 thrives on 2400 and A#9 using bullets of 100 grain minimum. The 85 grain Hornady and the 90 grain Sierra just weren't accurate in the short barrel at the high pressures. Rainier makes a 100 gr. plated FP and a 100 Gr. plated HP, they work well, even at the high pressures and I cast Lyman 311316, 115 gr. FPGC that really does the job. I found an old set of Model 85 wood grips with the gold Taurus medallion that really dress up my 327B2. I'll see if I can fins a pic to post. I bough them from someone her on TA classifieds. Found the pic. Still in the belt holster but the grips are really nice.

that’s exactly what I want to find. Beautiful setup there.

Wow! Motherland of brass and ammo! You are set for while!

I ended up picking up another classic cast about 6 months back. I should have never traded the first one, but I'm glad it's being cared for.

I have AA9, h110, and lil gun that are nice for the stiff loads. If your cylinder is long enough I even had good results using xtreme plated 123 gr AK bullets. Looks a little funny, but a good option for plinking fairly cheap.

I was wondering about doing that, or even using heavy for caliber cast lead meant for a 30-30 as I have 30 cal lead from 90 to 300 gr (would stick to the 150 or less) and shoot that at 32 mag pressures.

Get the latest copy of Handloader magazine (OCT 2018). Pearce has under his Pet Loads column an article on loading for the .32 H&R Mag. Realistically the .327 Fed Mag in a 2"-3" barrel is a flame thrower. You can get very good results out of the H&R Mag with a faster powder that won't throw a flame. Pearce even has some +P loads for a J frame with a 1 7/8" barrel that look good. His +P load of 6.3 grains of AA#5 pushing a Hornady 100 grain XTP at 952 fps out of that S&W J Frame is also his most accurate load out of that J Frame.

Or you can stay with the .327 and just use a faster powder at a lower pressure level and a heavier bullet.

BTW, Rim Rock has a couple of 125 grain SWC bullets for the .32. 125 grains seems to be about the heaviest .313 cast bullet I can find, but I keep seeing loads that references to a 130 grain Rim Rock Keith.
