CDNN has been absolutely liquidating those Taurus .327, but a NOTE of caution:

The .327 Federal Mag, perhaps because of it's high pressure or the burn rate for factory ammo, for whatever reason, makes a tremendously large LEAP in muzzle velocity between 2 and 3 inches of barrel.

To put it another way: .327 is fast & hot from a 3-inch barrel and above, and it ramps up quickly with more barrel as it goes.

However, .327 Federal is comparably anemic from a 2-inch barrel, which is pretty much all the snub Taurus revolvers that CDNN catalogs.

Bottom line, in my own personal opinion: A .327 with a two-inch barrel is a lousy choice for a .327 Federal. For everything that we believe a .327 Federal chambered revolver offers, a two inch barrel negates most all of it.

These are my opinions.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.
