    .327 Federal

    I was at my local dealer yesterday and saw a Ruger SS revolver in .327 Federal. It was the first I had seen this caliber. He said it would also shoot several other .32 rounds. Any info on this chambering would be appreciated. Thanks, Fom

    I think it fires the .32 H&R magnum and maybe the 32-20.
    I dont think it can be put in a lever action because of the high pressure. At least not the 1894.
    There is a couple threads on this round in the 1894 categorie and i think the handgun categorie as well.

    Re: .327 Federal

    It is a lengthened .32 Mag, straight walled, therefore it will not shoot the bottlenecked .32-20. It will fire the .32 Mag, .32 S&W Long and the .32 S&W. Pressure is no more than the .357 Mag levels. Very nice round for the smaller carry concealed pistols. Sposed to dup. the .357 Mag 110 grain loadings.

    I have yet to see any Rugers for it or any ammo where I live.

    The 327 Fed Mag is rated for 40,000psi. Which is higher than the SAAMI 357 Mag standard of 35,000.

    Re: .327 Federal

    Alright i found a post that talks about the pressure being too much in a Marlin 1894, very bottom of thread. I guess it is fine in a revolver though.

    Nah. There'd be a thicker barrel wall with the smaller diameter cartridge. The engineers would have to do the math, but I *think* it could be made to work.
