I finally found some of the Federal American Eagle .327 FM 85 grain jsp ammo at Cabela's. I would have bought a box but they wanted roughly $2.00 more per box then the very same stuff in the 100 grain jsp ammo! I thought this was total BS, I will still shoot my reloads much cheaper!!!

I have two 327's, my Single Seven and my LCR. They are a bit pricey to shoot. I got lucky when I bought my Single Seven, I found a sporting good store in NC that was just wanting to get rid of their 327 ammo AE 100 grain. I bought a whole case fairly cheaply and they covered the shipping.

Every now and then you stumble across a deal on ammo you can't pass up. I was at the Academy Sports near me one time and they were blowing out the Speer 100 grn .327 FM ammo for $10/box. Needless to say I have a bunch of 100 grn Speer at home.

Yes, I put some Pachmayer Diamond Pro grips on mine.

Not that the recoil was horrible with the stock grips.

Much less recoil than when I tried .357s out of my LCR,
and more power than a 38 Special.

Ammo for it costs as much as most .38/357

I'm also thrilled to have an LCR with 6-shots!

I shot 25 of the Federal 100 gr. Soft Points today with the Diamond Pro gips.

It seemed like it had even more recoil than the Speer 100 grain Gold Dots,
and the stock Hogue grips.

I'm still getting sticky extraction, so I guess it's a good thing a person has 6-shots
to start with.

I'm going to try to find some 85 grain American Eagle, and see how that
does.

Will keep a few rounds of the 100 grain around though.

Should the 85 grain stuff prove to be tamer, then I'll use it as
my practice ammo.

The SPEER 100 grain Gold Dots seem to be perfect for carry.

I'd like to see Ruger offer more .327s this year, esp a KLCRX 3
incher, as other than pocket or ankle carry, it would be a bit
heavier and with more velocity than the 1/78 inch KLCR.

I have the .327 and carry the Federal Low Recoil Hydrashoks. I'll probably pick up a box of the Gold Dots at some point, but can't seem to find them around here.

That's interesting.

I've tried the 100 grain and the 85 grain American Eagle and the cases just fall out of the gun. No sticking.

AE 100 & 85 grain is the only ammo Ive ever had for my 327's.
Never had a sticking issue.

The 100 grains are really stout. Over penetration could be an issue,, unless you have the hood rats lined up in a row. I would NOT use them for SD in a crowded public setting.
.
The 85 grain seem to mushroom & fragment on contact.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

As for 9mm ammo. I carry CCI Blazer brass 124 grain FMJ.

I live rural. Over penetration is not an issue.

But with 4 legged critters, under penetration sure could be.
About 2 weeks ago I walked out onto the porch at night to meet face to face with a fairly large Black Bear.

9mm I use HST, ARX plus P, Critical Duty. I really like all the test I have seen so far with the ARX 9mm plus P.

I hand load my 327 Fed Mag LCR with Hornady 85 gr XTPs and a medium load of HP-38. That load has much less muzzle blast than factory Federal ammo plus shoots very well out of my snubby.
