.327 ! How could I forget that . . . I'd be really interested to do some ballistic testing of .327 vs .357 to see if the claim that the former does everything that the latter can do is accurate. If that's true, I could buy a J framed size gun in .327 with six shots . . . Ooo S&W should make an N frame size in .327! You could probably get 10 shots in it!

From what I've read, it's close depending on the round. Obviously, the .357 will be able to handle heavier rounds, but in the 100gr to 125 gr range, they are pretty close.

Federal JSP.

.327 Federal Magnum - (100 gr) 500 FT/LBS, 1500 FPS

.357 Magnum - (125 gr) 575 FT/LBS, 1440 FPS

I have the Taurus M 327, the .327 Fed has a considerable amount of extra pop than the .32 H&R

Mechanically, it looked like it was great. Cosmetically, it needs a little work (not much). It's stainless steel, so is should be easy to clean up.

I'll post pics later. I will say that it has a DAMN nice trigger in both SA/DA.
Exactly why I don't understand the Taurus haters, yeah they might not be up to sig or hk or S&W standards but that is why they are a cheaper price range. I have 2 currently but had more and each one was 100% reliable. I believe Taurus is a great company

I agree. I don't people who hate certain gun brands. A lot of them have never even owned one. They're just going by what someone else said.

Taurus? No, they are not a S&W, but then again they are not a $700-$1000 gun.

I believe that Taurus' even come with a life time warranty that follows the gun, not the person.
