Is anyone really making them anymore. i know Ruger had some offerings but really haven't seen them anywhere. IIRC when they were first introduced they were pretty popular. How's ammo selection?????

Seems like a revolver chambering that never really took hold.

38 special is already less recoil and most of the power of a 357, with a bigger hole than a 327. I just don't see the need for it IMHO.

Only seen one and my uncle had it. Said it was a very nice round but just didn't take off in popularity.

Seeing Ruger SP101 and LCR/LCRx in this caliber and Henry Bigboy's.
can also shoot .32 mags thru them .
ammo's available so that's a plus!

Seems like a neat round. I wonder if it's as vicious a noisemaker as the .30 Carbine!

I do not think it is as loud as a 30 carbine revolver. A coworker has one of the Rugers and likes it. I haven't shot it but he said it is noticeable less recoil than his same model gun in 357 with recoil about like that gun with 38spcl +P.

Ammo I see it on the shelf at Cabela's most of the time, you can also use 32 H&R mag for lower recoil or make it a powderpuff for recoil with 32 S&W ammo.

My favorite round but damn it's loud and a flame thrower with factory ammo.

Hand loads designed around 7 1/2 inch barrels will make a big difference. I've got some 85 grain loads that are running close to 2000 fps from a 7 1/2 inch barrel that leave little flash. Most shoot factory ammo designed around a much longer barrel and allot of the powder gets blown out the barrel.
