Which .32 Magnum are you referring to? The .327 Federal Magnum or the older .32 H&R Magnum?

I have owned at least six revolvers chambered for the .32 H&R Magnum since I bought my first one in late 1984. Currently own two S&W's, a Model 16-4 six inch, and a Model 631 four inch. Two Rugers, a 6.5 inch Single Six Magnum and a special edition Blackhawk called the Buckeye Special. It is a 6.5 inch convertible with two cylinders. The second one is for the old .32-20 WCF.

I have zero experience with the new .327 Federal Magnum. It looks to be a nice and useful cartridge but it really won't do anything that I can't do by hot loading the .32-20 or using light weight bullets in the .357 Magnum.

And so it goes.

Retired ONE>>>yes, I was actually thinking of the new .327 mag.. but i thought it was higher velocity, than the .32HR mags?
Probably just stay with .357 mag, as i might be surprised about chasing the new ammo down, then there would be the new dies??And as you said on, and on, so it goes...HF.

Bought my wife a Charter ARMS .327. THAT particular model is to light for that hot of a load. It fires .32 H&R Mag fine. The .327 is very uncomfortable to fire, I surmise from the light frame

Seems the best pistol for this round might just be the SP101.

Except for the ban madness... revolvers haven't been mentioned. Should be able to get 8 of the 32s in a revolver on the same frame size as the 7 shot 357s...

I have the 6 shot SP101 and the 7 shot GP100. They both shoot like a laser. They will be the last gun's I will ever dispose of.

My sister carries a .32 HR mag. Seems like a logical choice for her.I sure as hell wouldn't want to soak up a couple in the chest.

Okay, I wanted it for my wife, plus I needed to try it..She has .357, but hates sound and recoil. I load her some soft .38 specials..Then,The last one is full-house 125gr.magnum..But, i definitely would not want to be on the recieving end of any magnum, even with type 3 vest..
