    I can see why some guys, (esp. older guys) like the .32 H&R Magnum.


    I did get a few sticky Gold Dot cases after firing the lead SWC (Federal) .32 H&R
    Mag, so that might have been the lead acting up.


    Given the fact that the .327 Magnum load didn't have nearly the recoil of any
    Magnums out of my old LCR .357






    The soon to arrive Diamond Pro grips will probably tame the recoil a bit.


    All in all..I think that the right .327 Magnum load will serve me well.
    Having that 6th-shot might be a life-saver for myself or someone else one day

    I can see why Ruger came out with the 327. More evidence of how Smart and Perceptive Ruger is. I have been reading up on the
    .32 H&R and it appears to be in line with the 380. in Ballistics and stopping power, but without as much recoil. Maybe a ideal choice for recoil sensitive shooters. For carry the 327 is a powerful round and yes the benefit of being able to have a 6th round chambered speaks for itself. All of this said, the LCR is for me, is a fun little revolver. I love taking it to the range. And I am seriously thinking about getting one in .22.

    I've actually sold all my .22s and just enjoy shooting the .22 Magnum.
    I'd rather carry the .327 Magnum and then have the .22 Magnum for some cheaper practice.

    Other than the .22 Magnum having a heavier trigger pull than the other LCRs, it would go great with my .327 and my CZ rifles in .22 Mag.

    Only one thing I see where I would disagree with your statement of 22.lr vs WMR is the cost.My gosh, 22 Mag is expensive as heck. I have a .22 lr with a convertible mag cylinder and have about 1000 rds of mag ammo, but rearely shoot it, because the cost is so dang high to replace it. And Not always easy to find. Even at the lowest price at Walmart when available is around $15.00 for a box. Heck, I can reload 9mm with light rounds a whole lost cheaper about half the cost. I wish 22.mag would get real in cost. It really is a fun round to shoot. Just looking at cost and the cheapest is .22 cents a round. vs 6 cents around for 22. Heck, I can buy new 9mm ammo cheaper.

    As I no longer reload.

    Even at $12.95 for 50 rounds (locally),I do think it would be cheaper to shoot than .327 Magnum.

    I usually practice with 3-4 speed loaders or so with Revolvers, then go to my Ruger 1911 in 9mm or my other 9mm or in the past, .45 ACP pistols.

    I'm not a volume shooter, but do try to practice at the indoor range once or even twice a week.

    A .22 Magnum LCR would be a sweet addition. My wife and the girls would probably love to shoot it as well.

    I shot 25 of the Federal 100 gr. Soft Points today with the Diamond Pro gips.

    It seemed like it had even more recoil than the Speer 100 grain Gold Dots, and the stock Hogue grips.

    I'm still getting sticky extraction, so I guess it's a good thing a person has 6-shots to start with.

    Hi guys.

    Reloading is out of the question for me.

    I'm hoping that if I do pick up a box or two of the 85 grain A&E that it will be tamer than the 100 grain.

    I can see where the 100 grain SP ammo would be ideal for the Blackhawk or .327 GP100.

    As I really bought the .327 becuase I wanted a Magnum with less recoil than my old KLCR .357...

    The SPEER 100 grain has perfect recoil for, but still a bit spendy@20 bucks for 20 rounds.

    Eric @ HBE is making me a LCR holster, so I should be seeing that in 12 weeks or so.

    Right now my new sticky Tec-Grip holster from Blackhawk works.

    Still, I like that 6th round and the wonderful trigger.

    Just need to try to 85 grain and see how that goes.

    The local shops also sell the 85 grain Federal JHP for $20 a box of 20. That is interesting as well, but only for carry.

    Retired officer here too and also former defensive tactics instructor. That can't be emphasized enough. If you have a gun and are afraid or reluctant to use it, it is so fast and easy for the criminal to take your gun away from you, especially, as is usually the case, if the criminal is bigger and stronger.
