Hi guys.

Reloading is out of the question for me.

I'm hoping that if I dopick up a box or two of
the 85 grain A&E that it will be tamer than the
100 grain.

I can see where the 100 grain SP ammo would be ideal
for the Blackhawk or .327 GP100.

As I really bought the .327 becuase I wanted a Magnum
with less recoil than my old KLCR .357...

The SPEER 100 grain has perfect recoil for , but still
a bit spendy@20 bucks for 20 rounds.

Eric @ HBE is making me a LCR holster, so I should be
seeing that in 12 weeks or so.

Right now my new sticky Tec-Grip holster from Blackhawk
works.

Still, I like that 6th round and the wonderful trigger.

Just need to try to 85 grain and see how that goes.

The local shops also sell the 85 grain Federal JHP for
$20 a box of 20. That is interesting as well, but only
for carry.

The 85 grain AE are much, much tamer that the 100s. You might have to order online but they can be had for $21.95 a 50 round box. By searching Ammo Seek I saw several places that had them is stock.

Well, I just got a 327 Federal LCR.

The guy I got it from said it had two much recoil for him.

He gave me a box of American Eagle 100's with 12 rounds missing and I took it to the range yesterday for the first time.

I put on the longer, no finger groove Hogue grip used on the 3" LCRs.

I found the recoil of the AE 100's not that bad with the bigger grip.

I ordered some 100 gr gold dots, 85 gr Federal HydraShok JHPs, and some AE 85s and will try that next range trip.

But I already survived the AE 100's. :-)

BTW, the shooters on both sides of me complained about being pelted with unburnt powder particles.

The cylinder gap seems normal, so I expect that AE ammo was really designed for a longer barrel.

Looking forward to getting an Henry 327 Federal level gun and probably will save the AE 100's for that.
