.327 federal?

Anyone have firsthand experience with this caliber? Seems like it lives between a .38 and .357.

The biggest advantage it has over a 38 is you can typically get one more round in the same size cylinder.

Re: .327 federal?

Great round in a revolver and it has MANY more reasons for being here than just sheer amount of rounds in a cylinder...I'd liken it to an easier to reload 32-20. It's a round that needs reloaded to really get the full potential out of and what a great gun for the Pa summer fun of whistle pigs. BTW, if extra rounds really matter to you, the Ruger Blachawk actually holds 8

No comparison to the .38 is really needed unless you are trying to actually defend it''s existence by calling it a defensive round like the marketing to the masses suggests. It's a round I believe is right at home in the Ruger Single action. You need one for sure!
