    In my mind, it's a potential age-in-place rifle/pistol combination with a good revolver, such as the SP-101.

    If Ruger have any smart marketing folks, they are likely looking at one of the Marlin .357 offerings as a .327 crossover to tie in with an SP-101 or GP-100.
    I was just reading a little about the cartridge. Very interesting...

    Edit - I see Ruger does a birdshead SA that would be a great woods gun, and also a few others. Too bad the Henry .327 carbine isn’t a side gate model.

    This is very interesting: https://www.ruger.com/products/newMo...eets/8163.html

    I had one of those birdshead Rugers. A great little gun, very well built and fits in K-frame leather. Very loud though.

    To my mind, the .327 is ideal in a lever. The Federal 100gr JSP is close to 2,200fps out of a 20” tube.

    Decided on a Henry X Series, .45-70. Now to find some suitable ammo to zero and ready for deer season.

    Nice! I’m hoping they expand the X Series.

    I realized as I was driving around this afternoon that the .327 from a long gun is about equivalent to light .300 BLK loads from a shorter barrel.

    What caliber are you wanting? I'll eventually add a .30-.30 with a more traditional wood stock. I'm gonna leave my PCC's to my CZ Scorpions.

    .327 has really caught my eye... but realistically the current .357/.38 offering would fill my needs.

    I might have a couple boxes of Remington 300 JHP and/or 405 SP left in the closet. I’ll check tomorrow night and let you know.

    Managed to put a few rounds of Hornady Leverevolution .325 FTX through the rifle this morning. Two firsts for me, first time shooting a lever gun and shooting .45-70. Out of the box, the sights were on at 50 yards. Had a few mishaps jamming up the lifter via the side gate but that was 100% user induced. I’m a rookie at this lever gun stuff, but so far I’m very pleased. More to follow.....
