I guess that ammo availability was the first thing that came to mind. Second question is will it be unpleasant to shoot?The .327 sounds good, but ammo availability, or the lack thereof, will keep me from ever owning one.
I've not shot the LCR 38, but I had a Taurus snubbie in 327. Recoil was sharp, but it was the muzzle blast that led me to get rid of it. That, and the fireballs.So how is the .327 compared to the .38?
I've had the LCR/LCRX in 38. Currently have the LCR22 and was thinking about gettin another centerfire wheel gun. Six shots would be nice.
YUP. I have a Blackhawk and a Sp101. Not much recoil on the big heavy Blackhawk, But the SP101 is a handful on full loads. And there is NO such thing as shooting this cartridge without full hearing protection. I wouldn't even wanna have to in a SD situation. " Excuse me MR. Bad guy, and hold still while I install my ear plugs". But I'm certain it would drop anyone in their tracks. Its a very nasty round for sure.I've not shot the LCR 38, but I had a Taurus snubbie in 327. Recoil was sharp, but it was the muzzle blast that led me to get rid of it. That, and the fireballs.
Nothing the liberal gun grabbing fruits and nuts do surprises me anymore.And you're surprised?
The energy of the 327 far exceeds the energy of the 38 or 38+p, so recoil should be greater, as well. "Sharper" is correct, due to the lighter, faster bullet.As others have posted, I'd expect it to be loud, and the recoil to be comparable to the .38, but sharper.
