Be very careful when you try to come off like an expert... not a dang one of those cartridges is .327". Matter of fact, I don't actually know of any chambering out there that is .327".
All of these cartridges are .312".
You are correct here... perhaps the O.P
. was thinking about Chevrolet..
They made a 327
small Block engine that was also awesome...
Early S&W hand guns have trouble grouping well
with Bullets of diameter's of .0312"-.0313".
Mine Prefer bullets of .0310" being my 1904 single shot target pistol chambered in .32 S&W caliber the baby of the .32 rounds and my 1925 Regulation Police revolver which is chambered in the .32 S&W Long Caliber, so that is why I re-load for them all to get the most accuracy out of them on paper. S&W Needs to get their act together
and Offer this round in a K-Frame gun
with a barrel length of at least 4" to make the velocity shine
. That very reason was why I had my Older Model 16-4 .32 H&R Magnum caliber gun converted to the new Federal .327 Magnum round and never looked back.
I would be willing to bet if S&W brought back the Model 16-4 as the new model 16-5 chambered in Federal .327 Magnum
there would be a waiting list
of buyers for it...
Long Live the .32 round and those of us that undestand just how accurate and promising it really is !
