32 H&R Magnum in a 327 Fed Magnum rifle

Post by Richard677 » Sun May 12, 2019 8:57 pm

Has anybody shot any 32 Mag loads in their 327 Fed Mag Big Boy Classic brass rifle? I haven't seen any reports of such and was curious. Although my rifle is barrel marked: 327 Fed Mag/32 H & R Mag the 32 H & R rounds seem sloppy in the oversized loading tube so much so I can see the rounds getting jammed up inside from such a little cartridge in such a large feed tube. Maybe I'm wrong but in this case size does matter. Your thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated. Richard.

I haven't. Don't really see the need.

I don't have the brass model.
Mine is steel, but yes, I have shot quite a bit of .32H&R magnum through it, at least a couple of hundred rounds, and without any issues at all.
It's much like shooting a .22wmr.
If you want to try something really fun, try shooting the .32S&W longs.
They feed in my rifle without too much problem, and it's like shooting a cap gun.

The .32H&R mags are a great next step for new shooters after the .22lr.

Shoot away and don't worry about them getting stuck in the tube.
That's not going to happen.

Mine will feed 32 longs as well, I have even fired a few 32S&W just because I could. They do need to be single loaded directly into the chamber being so short.

The 32 H&R is one of my favorites. Even if you have to single load them, they're such a sweet cartridge to shoot, you can't go wrong.

All of the rimmed .32 cartridges such as .32 S&W long and short , .32 H&R and .327 are all the same diameter. The only thing not the same is the lengths. So I don't see how one could be a "sloppy fit" in the magazine tube.

A short rimmed round is likely to 'feel' more sloppy in the tube than a longer rimmed round of the same diameter. Has to do with the angle the round rests with the rim as a fulcrum. The longer the round, the lessor the angle.
