    I took a Double Tap 125 grain Gold Dot cartridge.

    Also a Gold Dot in .327 Federal Magnum that was 100 grains.

    Other than a slightly larger diameter, the .38 Special Gold Dot wasn't that much larger.

    As one who never like shooting the 158 grain 38 or 38+P loads of of my LCRs, this 100 Gold Dot seems to have less recoil.

    The 110 and 125 38+Ps shot softer, but without that Magnum puch on the fighting end.

    While some people have no problem with recoil and any .357 Magnum load from a LCR, I'm not one of them.

    Besides, even though a .357, you still only get 5-shots vs 6-shots with the .327 Federal.

    A RUGER LCP II sure is neat looking, but I think that I've ran the gamut with .380 pistols.

    Thus, that leaves me with the option of selling or trading my .327 LCR in favor of a LCR in 9mm.

    However, some report that the 9mm has near .357 Magnum recoil and then there is the crimp jump possibility.

    If I can find a practice load (I no longer reload) that is as tame as the 100 grain Gold Dot, or at least .32 H&R Magnum level, then I'll just have to vote .327 magnum over .38/357 .380 or 9mm for my pocket pistol carry needs.

    I'm pretty much convinced that I want to carry and practice only with .327 Magnum ammo.

    I'm hoping to find some 85 grain A&E.
