Well, I dohave a Smith in .327 and it is real loud.
It was Hammerdowns account of his conversion that got me interested. I was not real happy with the 3 inch barrel and thought that it would be better with the longer barrel,
This 16-4 became available on the S&W forum and I took the chance.
He it is again.
That 16-4 barrel is as Long as Texas... Just Kiding, if you are planing to hand load for it or have some one hand load for you, I have some excellent hand load information. Here is a link to some that I have found super accurate
, and the article is a good read on the Federal .327 Magnum Cartridge. The Load I killed the large Bobcat with was using a Sierra 90 Grain Sport's Master hollow point bullet
and Accurate Arms #7 Powder
dispenced at 11.0 Grains
being a Half Grain Heavier than the article suggested as that was where my guns true accuracy really Shined
giving me aone hole Group using a CCI Small Pistol magnum primer and medium crimp. It clocked an actual speed of 1640-1660 varied F.P.S. out of my 6" Barrel
Two feet in front of it using my Chrony Bullet velocity Meter. Shown below is the Test day with Chrony in place and the recovered slugs
at the 15 Yard line that I dug out of the dirt Berm when I was done. As you can see the 90 Grain Sierra Sport's Master hollow point Bullet's expanded Very well
