I was late to the party when the Single Six came out in 32, as the idea of it sort of flew right over my head & I never gave it much thought.
Fast forward to the Obama 22LR shortage & a small caliber that was reloadable suddenly got interesting. I found a 5.5" blue, adjustable at a decent price & grabbed it. Ordered dies, bullets, brass & went to work. YES! a fun gun. I soon realized I needed more brass & bullets.

"So what you have there is a mini 357 Magnum there or getting sort of close ??? 🙂👍 "

While many like to compare the .327 to the hot 38's or the .357,, I never do. Bullet mass has a lot to do with downrange performance. Velocity is only one part of the equation.
So,, it's good for small to medium game in my opinion. I'd use a .357 for deer, but a 327 would not be a choice I'd consider. And since many a thug weighs as much if not more than a deer,, AND may be on some kind of stimulant,, I want something I can trust to take him out with one shot. My 357 will get the nod over a .327 there as well.

I'm NOT saying it can't do the job,, if properly loaded or used,, but too many variables to take any chances.

Well that makes sense. That is why you have a 327, and you have a 357. Each are special in what they were designed to do. I guess in how they are loaded and for that purpose means everything. I do not or have not I should say ever done any reloading. Hopefully when I retire at the end of the year, I would like to look into it. That is of course if my great state of CA. Allows me to do it then, as they always want to change gun laws here. For you folks who live in more free and gun friendly states, enjoy it. God Bless America!! 🙂

Well, I'm a bit different than many of the posters here.

I enjoy shooting the 327 mag as well as the .32 Mag. Several years ago,, in Idaho while visiting "sixshot",, several of us went on safari. The quarry was ground squirrels. Between the Hawkeye in .256 Win, and the .327,, many of those little burrowing devils fed the badgers & buzzards over a couple of days. That .327 spoke with authority too! :D
The .327s are definitely "authoritative". I call mine "snappy"!

Case full of H110/296 w/ 100gr XTP and light it off with a Small Rifle Primmer.
My guns like 11gr.
With this in a Ruger no need to go to 327M, that load is a very close to 327M,,,
and after all, what you really trying to do with a 32 or 327?,,, 🙄

I feel the same way.....maybe if we pool our money together, we can get it tomorrow. Of course it would probably be with me at least 75% of the time........🙂🙂😄😄.....maybe 80% ??

I'm thinking I need to buy a place holder to take a little pressure off. Maybe a Single Seven
You know I started a thread not long ago about specifically the 327 asking for people's thoughts on it as I personally do not have one and have the regular blued 32 H&R......I was thinking the 327 was definitely the way to go but you know after hearing from folks who have them. They DO like them a lot, but most of them shoot the 32 Mag and 32 Longs that they reload, out of the 327. When I look at it now, I think I would be happy with another 32 Mag as a shooter and keep my 1985 model pristine ? That is how I am leaning.

I have quite a bit of history with the H&R and some with the .327. I got out of it a while back and recently decided that was a stupid decision. I have a .327 SP101 but the Single Six is my favorite.

Earlier today I mentioned about the Single Six 32 H&R Mag revolver in another thread. It was a casual post, but have thought about it today. The original blued Single Six. Remember the ads back in 1984 & '85 talking about the new "Hard hitting new varmint round" amongst other advertising verbage. I, like a lot of others, saw that picture in the catalog and said " Wow, now that looks really interesting !! I always loved and still do love the Single Six in 22 rimfire, but this is now center fire in a small Single Six package !!! The 32 H&R Mag round would be perfect in the Single Six !! That's exactly what I thought then and still do think. To me, the original Blued Single Six back then with the adjustable sights was to me just magical. I think a lot of folks think the same exact thing.
