    I tried an internet search and came up with noithing, so sorry if this has been beaten to death.

    What is the opinion of the 327 mag? How does it stack up compared to the 38 or the 357 in stopping power? I am really intriged by this round, but i am not sure if I want to make the jump or not.

    I would call it in between the 38 special and 357 magnum in stopping power. I think it's niche might be someone who wants more than the 38 special but wants less recoil than the .357. I've got a Smith & Wesson model 632 with a 3 inch barrel, and the felt recoil is way less than a 357 mag. Mine is fabulously accurate. It also gives you the advantage of having six shots in a J frame rather than five. I love it. More power than a .38, but much more tolerable to shoot in a lightweight handgun than a .357.

    niche round for hobbyists and collectors

    ammo is hard to find, and expensive

    I want one... and with a 32-20 conversion cylinder... and a shoulder stock

    I'd get one if the brass ever comes available

    I think the LCR in one (6 rounds) would be one hell of a seller... hell I would probably just have to have one as well.... I find it to be an intriguing cartridge and, if the ammo is ever available in any real amounts locally with reloading components to follow, I will definitely pick one up.
