Designed to bring the power of the .357 Magnum to the
six-shot revolver, the
.327 Federal Magnum was the birthchild of a partnership
which included Sturm, Ruger, and Federal Cartridge. Introduced in 2008,
Introduced in 2008, the new .327 is one of the most
.32-caliber rounds to ever be chambered in a handgun. Federal
currently offers three factory loads for the
.327 and their performance is
impressive. This ammo includes tough, jacketed hollow-point and soft-point
bullets at velocities unheard of only a few years ago.
32-Caliber rounds have long been considered weak and
powerless in a self-defense scenario, especially since they often only wounded
the person being shot. However, the birth of the
.327 Federal Magnum changed
that viewpoint. The
.327 fires 85-grain bullets
at 1,500 fps and 100-grain bullets at about 1,450 fps.
Muzzle energy of the
latter round is about 467 ft-lbs. By comparison, the
.357 Magnum generates 540
ft-lbs and the
.44 Magnum, 860 ft-lbs.
It’s a definite improvement on it’s .32 caliber high-powered
predecessor, the .32 H&R Mag, which was built in 1984. Once the .327
Federal Magnum was introduced, it quickly became popular amongst shooters who
prefer a revolver over semi-automatic, especially when the size of the gun is taken
into consideration. With the gun easily concealed and the
bullet able to bring
down would-be attackers, the
.327 will only grow in it’s popularity.
Each box contains 50 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.
It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
