    What are the thoughts about .327 Magnum in one of these guns? It supposedly hits at least as hard as .38 Special +P, with the advantage of one extra round. Assuming that ammo for it was easy enough to get ahold of, and one already had a J-frame in .38, would you consider the .327 Mag sufficient out of such a short barrel?

    .327 Federal is a great caliber and revolvers chambered for it have the advantage of also being able to shoot the .32 H&R Magnum, .32 S&W Long/Short, and .32 ACP.

    Good to know. I like the idea of having an extra round onboard, but was wondering if the caliber had enough penetration and terminal performance from such a short barrel. If it does, I think it would be a superior choice over the .38.

    327 is a good round. It's greatest shortcoming is that there are very few manufacturers making guns that chamber it.

    In a short barrel, the 32 H&R magnum is good too. It gives you the sixth round in the j frame too. It suffers the same shortcoming. Just not enough demand to justify major manufacturing and sales.

    If I came across a 432, the Centennial style j frame in 32 H&R, for a reasonable price I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

    I saw a S&W 32 (I believe model 632) on gunbroker some months ago. I wanted it badly. Was not willing to pay $3000+ for it though.
