I kinda like the .327...I bought a bunch of brass and some heavier bullets to mess around with, but just haven't had the time. Bought the 8-shot Blackhawk as the platform...I'll probably get Hamilton Bowen to make a few changes in the gun...shorter barrel...different sights...better trigger...usual stuff. My idea is to use the gun as a trail gun for hiking (I do a lot of that, with Alf the Wonder Beagle).

There's a big aftermarket in .327 Single Six conversions, and the guys on the single action boards are crazy about the cartridge. Bob Baker @ Freedom Arms builds a really really nice SA .327 revolver...I was almost tempted to open my wallet at SHOT.

Thinking about having my Bowen .30 Carbine Blackhawk rechambered...

PS: Predator rifle is stupid fun!

PPS: Was in Brazil in November and begged the guys at Rossi to build a .327 Model 92 lever gun. The Marlin .32 H&R was cool but never worked worth a hoot, especially if you ran it fast...issues on the diameter of the mag tube, I think. I still have one...
