Quite right, but I did see a beautiful blued J-frame revolver chambered for it last Saturday morning.

I'm not really up on J frames... did they keep the .327 at 5rds or go for six? I wouldn't mind having one, or a 4 5/8" Single-six with fixed sights.

That strikes me as being towards the meaner end of small caliber stuff.

It had 6.
I read an American Rifleman article about the round when it was developed a few years ago. They said they were going for the power of the .357 Mag but with less recoil. I didn't see the point then and I still don't. Seems like a solution without a problem to me.

Great. What's that one got that .45-70 doesn't? Or .444 Marlin?
Hmmm...
Another cartridge that doesn't do anything special I figure.

And the only pistol that comes to my mind is S&W's X frame. It and .500S&W... put 'em on wheels. :?:

Well, I'd been thinking about this... these two older ladies I'm acquainted with... their grip strength just isn't there as maybe compared to you or me. Watching them shoot full-house .357, I thought they were fixing to get their hats re-creased. I like the ammo they brought, but it's too heavy a recoil for them. Well, I got to poking around... an instructor told me some of his students in similar situations prefer the .327 Fed Mag in Ruger's DA/SA revolvers.

I'd still prefer the Single-six, or make my Smith a 4" K frame, although the latter is probably a custom job.

The 327 mag. is basically in performance a 32+P mag. that reaches the velocity levels of the .357 Magnum,up to 1400 ft/s.

The 460. has slightly more power than the .454 Casul and shoots flatter than the 454 or the 500, so if your talking distance, the 460 is your man!

A while back, I saw a Single-something-or-other... don't remember how many rounds that one carried... stainless with adjustable sights in .327 with a 7.5" barrel. I think that's the longest barrel I've seen for it... thinking what'll get it to the max.

The only X frames I've seen in the .460 had barrels about 16" or a tad longer... handguns entering carbine territory. I recall these being marketed to hunters in the Rockies. Like you said, distance. If Bob Munden could make seemingly insane long shots with the .38, a hunter should with practice be able to make a sensible shot with the .460. I joke about using it like artillery, but hey, it's huge for a handgun.

The .460 S&W Magnum comes in all size barrel lengths, even 3.5"...
