Thanks for the video link. Seems to answer my question quite well. Looks like I'll be putting the .327 Henry on my wish list.

I've got a S&W 31-1 in pristine shape. I take it to the range maybe once a year. It's a fine shooter for sure. Never had the inkling to try them in the Henry though. It shoots really smooth with the mag loads.

I shot a lot of longs in my rifle today
I found it will cycle fine if you keep the same type of round in the tube
so don't put a long 2 h&r 3 fed mags and 2 longs..... it doesn't like it

reported personal experience appreciated .... I have no clue why it wouldn't like mixing them and find that to be very interesting

Mine has digested .32 S&W longs without even noticing.
I have fired .32S&W shorts as well, but they take a little finesse on the lever to get them to feed properly.
The ammo capability is one of the reasons I bought the Henry .327.

Here’s another great video on the Henry 327 Federal magnum.

I have both the steel carbine and the brass rifle models. Both shoot/feed the 32 S&W Longs without a hiccup.
