If you are sticking with known (usually published) loads, you won't have any extra issues when building handguns rounds where there is little or no extra space inside for the powder to move around.

And there are plenty of loads in current use that leave quite a bit of free space inside -- enough to double or even triple charge the case and still have proper room for the bullet. These loads also typically work well, but in some rare cases, they act erratically when there is so much empty space that the powder can lay down flat and be ignited along it's length by the flame of the primer.

If this is real or merely theory is deep and dark discussion amongst handloaders.
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.
