    Hi jeff Michel, where did you get a 140 gr. sledge hammer bullet. so far the heaviest i've found for sale is the 115 gr. from Meisters. but I did just get the new wolf trigger spring and 10 lb.s hammer spring into my sp101(.327 Federal mag.) 4 inch barrel. I'll try mine Friday. the "kit" came with a 12 lb. hammer spring also. some people seem to like the 12 lb spring better than the 10 lb. one.

    The 10# kind of worked in my GP100, but I feel much better with the 12#. The 10# did not work in my SP101. I went with the lightest trigger return in my GP100 which resets with authority, but kept the stock one in my SP101, as it did not seem to reset as well with the light spring.

    The sledgehammer was a group buy a few years ago. Milhec did the cutting and 2 Dogs(member) was the Honcho. Here you go.

    And another:

    These are both in process or close to being ran.

My newer 327 has no problem handling ANY brass I've tried in it so far from 32 acp and "shorts" up through the 327s it's chambered for.

    P Flado, for what it is, I didn't regard Starline's 327 brass all that expensive, and I'm seeing them available in 100 round baggies now, which I regard as a minimal amount of any caliber to have in stock for reloading. I'm still picking up random amounts of 32 H&R and am up to about 3-400 rounds. Considering this is not going to be one of my primary loads, that should be plenty. As I typed this I remembered that I stashed a box of factory ammo and one of unprimed brass from that earliest run... I need to mark that or somehow keep it separate so I don't depend on it working well. Since my 125 grain NOE (314008) bullet is so long in the nose, I may use H&R brass to give me a bit more clearance in cylinder/chamber length.

    My is when they first came out and is a 8 shot. It is a 327mag BH ,I seen the write up in the American Rifleman some time ago when they first came up and talk with my gunsmith about it and got me one. I get that magazine.

    I just tried the 10# spring in my .327. it will not fire the shells in double action. only in single action.(I don't shoot much single action.) So I'll be changing out the 10 # for my 12 in the near future. I was given some .327 federal mag.s ammo. I fired one, (never mind, I'll try something else, they kick, HARD!).

    Yes they can . It works for me . beside all the others that you can shoot in it. Try 32 H&R Mag and see how that is for you.It is just alittle shorter then the 327.

    I picked up a 20 round box of H&R and they where ok, what i'm loading is real close to the power of the H&R. 3.5 gr's of Trail boss does pretty good, 4.4 gr's of 231 does good and so does 9gr.s of 4227. I had to go back to the 12 # spring on the hammer and it shoots the double action fine(only one misfire.) I"m shooting a .313 dia. bullet of 115gr.sl powder coated. I'd like to find a .314 dia. bullet of 115+ lb.s just to try it.

    Good to see it works out for you to use the H&R .Just a idea just shoot the 327 only when you need to if the times come since for how it for you and just use the other 4 that you can shoot in it.How is the groups for you for the ones you shoot with .313 dia? If it is good stick with it.I understand to see if .314 would be better at times I was thinking the same.I will see also if I would go that way also to see.

    i'll know a little more tomorrow. i've got two more loads to really try out. 4.4gr/s of 231. and 9gr's of 4227 with the 115gr. bullets.I've also had a real learning experience with changing the springs in these things. I also have the 10 shot .22 sp101. same gun just slightly different hole in the barrel. I might be looking at another one soon but what do I let go to afford another Ruger sp or GP????
