i figure with a header like that there most likely will be an argument.........
Anyways, life is still good with my Ruger LCR in 327 mag...though i mainly am shooting the 32 H&R mag thru her.
i may have posted this link before....but here it is again as food for thought. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
and i have probably said this before....i am not going to give up my 38's anytime soon.....but the temptation is there especially for the light weight snub.

You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn't? Yeah, I don't have one of those.

I have a SP101 4". It's my in the woods carry since it rides nicely in the shoulder holster I used with the S&W model 10,
I tend to prefer .38 Special over anything .32 however I do like the 7.62X25 in the CZ52 and I've heard good reports on the .327 mag. Still probably wouldn't trade any of my .38's or .357.s for anything in .32 though.
The .327 has my attention. If I didn't already have a Colt .357Mag. or two I would definately look into getting a .327. The .327 ballistics are very interesting for folks hat need stopping power without the recoil .357 recoil.
.32 caliber was always considered a capable caliber, for many years, before all the internet experts came along. Among other things, it was appreciated for it's mild recoil, and resultant accuracy.
so many thoughts and so many variables that have been championed, denounced, and theorized over the decades in the caliber wars arguments.....
bigger is better
faster is better
higher capacity is better
bullet super technology has leveled the playing field across the board
bullet technology follows murphy's law....when you need it most.
i like the six rd vs 5 argument in the snub......i especially like the lower recoil aspect of the 32 h&r in a snub.
I hate the lack of variety in factory ammo, the lack of stocking dealers....the poor selection of reloading components, and the higher ammo costs.
the price one pays i guess when he decides to dance to a different tune......
Of the over 1000 rounds of .32 I have only 60 are store bought, box of Speer gold dot and a box of Hornady critical defense 32 H&R, and a box of Buffalo Boar hard cast for bear. All the rest are loads I built using Hornady bullets, H110 or 2800 powder. The only dislike I have about the .327 federal is that it is loud. The recoil is light which aids a quick follow up. Four years ago I spent 3 months in the Hospital with Pancreatitis. They didn't have any gun mags so spent my time on my iPad reading and discovered a bunch of articles about Ruger's introduction of the .327, the ballistic testing is what sold me, it's also when I found this forum.

I don't understand why the price difference between a Ruger LCR in 38 and one in .327 fed us ~$200
