    I have a Rossi 410 snake charmer that i need a ram rod to get the shell out of. I have a JUDGE that is fantastic, I have PT-100 P - a 40 S&W version of a Beretta 92 that I am fond of and my wife uses her Taurus 6 Round Stainless 327 Federal Mag Revolver w/2" Barrel that is her main gun. (no longer made).
    Some work extremely well, actually most do. But some I would never use, I was looking for a pump action like the Colt lighting and turned tons of Taurus rifles that almost every dealer was stuck with and were eager to get rid of -- 1) because they did not work correctly, 2) their piss poor customer service was already legendary. You can not have that many guns with problems and expect us to believe it is the user fault. Come on this rifle was perfected close to a century earlier and you still can not get it right ? Says more about the company.
    So some good - some terrible - ymmv or "Your mileage may vary" .......

    I wish they still had that 327fm. That cartridge didn't need to disappear like it did.

    It is not gone. While it may not be available at most lgs with your credit card and a phone or computer the UPS man will have it on your front step in a few days.

    The ammo can be found, but the choices of handguns chambered for it are dismally low.

    The 327 Federal Magnum mess -- First we had guns but no ammo .......Now we have ammo but no guns (besides basically Ruger and Henry) .......... The blame rest strictly on the shoulders of Federal.... 100% at fault.....

    Ya, currently your SOL if you don't like Ruger. Ruger dose however offer a surprising number of 327 revolvers. LCR, Sp101, GP100 and single sevens. All except the LCR available in various barrel lengths. And I believe Henry is still offering a lever gun in a couple different barrel lengths.

    I guess I beat the odds. I have a Judge (a gift) and an Ultra light weight model 85 with a 2" barrel in 22 magnum and both shoot great and have for years. I have shooting buddies that have or did have some Taurus semi-autos that had triggers that the ROCK Johnson would have trouble squeezing.

    Mines an R97206. 6 shot, 6in. stainless. Hair trigger, but heavy double action. Might be an adjustment for that? Wife adopted it for a house gun.

    At one time S&W, Taurus, Charter Arms, Ruger (made and 8 shot BlackHawk) Freedom Arms and U.S. Firearms all made 327 Fed Mag revolvers. (I believe Freedom Arms still makes them but at the price of a good used pickem-up truck damned near.) And all are rare on the used market.
    Federal decided to sell ammo to the military for the war and left everyone one hanging with no ammo and no cases (with the exception of the rare and expensive 20 pack) A proprietary case no one else made until later. At that price and availability people were not heading to the range and letting people blaze through a few cylinders .....so word of mouth was rare and actual hands on experience was even more rare. Most were left by the bedside for self defense.....

    If Ruger can make it sell I look for a few of those companies to reintroduce them.
    ( I bought one from each company that made em with the exception of Freedom Arms and U.S. Firearms ....... and had to get my brass by emptying Federal cartridges)

    If you are gonna introduce a new cartridge make sure you make em available .....

    Who's military did they sell 327 to?
    Or are you saying they shorted out their entire brass supply.
