This rather niche cartridge was designed to not only improve upon .32 H&R Magnum, but also provide the same power as .357 Magnum in a smaller cartridge that could increase the capacity from five shots to six or more. On paper, it can do everything that the .357 Magnum can do, but with less recoil and muzzle blast.
With critical acclaim among gun writers, .327 Federal Magnum grew quite a cult following among revolver enthusiasts. It is this very reason that we chose to expand our Big Boy offerings to include this caliber. All of a sudden, .327 Federal Magnum revolver owners now have a lever-action rifle they could take to the range and enjoy with the same box of ammo.
The differences between .327 Federal Magnum and .357 Magnum are less apparent when being fired out of a carbine or rifle length barrel since recoil is minimal with either one, but we’re big fans of providing enthusiasts with more choices. We’re proud to offer the only .327 Federal Magnum rifle on the market.
