Probably not something that would interest me. I prefer .22 rimfire for target, plinking and small game, and calibers of .38 Special/.357 Mag and up for my other revolver needs.

Yeah, it's the same here. A couple .22lr Revolvers here. I'm already stock up with various .357 revolvers and a lever action carbine. I'm pretty happy with what I have. Don't think I'll switch to .327's.

Philrich01 will become famous soon enough
My ole Pop was a Big .32 calibre fan. He left me a pristine NIB S&W 16-4 which shoots like a gem. He also left me an old Colt Army Special in 32-20, as well as numerous .32 S&W and .32 S&W long firearms. The .32 is (arguably) one of the most accurate calibres out there.

I have fired a 32-20 at over 2000fps out of a very strong 32-20 lever action rifle ... WOW! I would love to have a hunting revolver and rifle in .327, a natural progression from earlier .32's; fun, hard hitting excitement.-Phil

Welcome Phil. I am a big .32 caliber fan too, and have 4 revolvers (three in .32 long, one in .32 H&R Magnum) and one Auto chambered in the ubiquitous .32 ACP.

i had read some complaining that ruger diid not put the 327 in the single six and the reason was because of the size of the existing window in the frame to accomodate the length of the cartridge.

Great single action!

This is the first quality single action I've ever owned 9though more than double the price of mu Haritage 32 H&R so can't knock it much.
The extra barrel length gives the expected higher velocities and the bonus of less felt muzzle blas, very fun gun. That said I would enjoy the same or slightly longer barrel quality DA revolver.
One interesting observation on Gunblast while shooting all barrel lengths of the single seven the 5.5" barrel had the highest velocities dispite the tighter cylinder gap on the 4 5/8ths barrel and the greater lenth og the 7.5" version. I think the available factory loads may favor the 5.5" barrel

The old Smith and Wesson Military and Police (Model 10) could be had in either .32-20 or .38 Special. The trouble was that some people used the high velocity .32-20 while the handguns were meant for the low velocity version. Barrel lengths were up to 6 1/2 inches. The .327 operates at around 45,000 CUP, which is much higher than the original .32-20 or the .32 H&R Magnum. I think an L frame Smith would be very popular in .327, especially in the longer barrel lengths. One word of caution, one article I read recently indicated the Ruger single Seven had a higher velocity in the 5 1/2 inch barrel than the 7 1/2 incher, and the 4 5/8 barrel was not very far behind. I settled on the 5 1/2 inch barrel for my Single Seven
