The powerful LCR-357™, 9mm Luger and .327 Federal Magnum models are made from blackened 400 series stainless steel.
I had a 38 spc and sold it because I didn't like the recoil from the little gun . When the lcrx came out , 3" barrel and larger grip, I loved it ! Now I have the .327 snubby and love it as well. I think the recoil is less than the .38 snubby, with higher muzzle energy. The factory God Dots are stiff to shoot, but I don't plan on using them much to shoot cans. My 100 gr XTP reloads are clocking 1180 fps on the chrono, which equates to about 305 ft-lbs muzzle energy. That's better than my Kahr PM9 shooting 147 grain HST ( about 280 ft-lbs muzzle energy) . WHEN Ruger introduces an lcrx version of .327 mag, I'll be first in line. It should be a peach.smarley said:Can anyone comment on the recoil between the LCR 38 and the LCR 327? I hear that the 38 and 9mm are about the same. I was just wondering if the 327 was any lighter.
I agree with your statements about the ammo and about the gun itself. It feels strong and it will handle whatever you're willing to put up with in terms of felt recoil. I also like it that it will handle pretty much any .32 out there, especially since fifty-round boxes of .327 Federal Magnum seems to be scarce these days.louiethelump said:...I really like it and will be carrying it. I like that it is 6 rounds not five and the 32 h&r factory ammo is enough power for me. The trigger pull is SUPERB and it offers a wide variety of ammo power range. I reload and will shoot lead bullets for fun and practice and carry only factory ammo for defense...
It IS chambered for all the loads mentioned with the possible exception of overenthusiastic handloads. Your dream has come true... 8)smarley said:...My dream is to find a lightweight snubby that is fun to shoot in the caliber for which it is chambered..
