There was a time back in my USPSA days that all I did was double action revolver with a 610 S&W. At one time I did 90,000 over a 2 year period, if that sounds like a lot, it was. But Todd Jarrett did 100,000 in 6 months getting ready for the world championships so my small amount pales compared to his.
Also in USPSA you are kind of slapping the trigger because you are running the cylinder so fast, when Bob shoots, it's very deliberate & calculated......and accurate way out there, did I say way out there.

Way out there? My Bushnell Laser said he was hitting badger mounds at 600 and 700 yds with a 4 inch model 57. I hit a few also, but I used (a lot) more of the cylinder to get them on target. I was using my 7.5 inch SBH hunter in 41 mag.

Good Times!

Crap Paul. That is less than half the price of a Ruger LCR. Could ALMOST hand them out as Christmas presents. Great stocking stuffers for the kiddies.
Buds has the LCR for $632....$650 on a card.

Thank you! Just ordered a couple bags.

I had forgotten about that place. I got some 300 Savage brass from them one time, but that was several years ago.

They are pretty stout little revolvers. Not lightweights by any stretch. I suppose I have normal size hands, and they fit very well. The blued one is kind of a matte finish, that some have said is a rust magnet. The stainless ones weren't out when I bought mine or I would have gone with a stainless.

That is a whole lot. Likely more than I will shoot with all guns over the course of my life.

3 of my 5. The missing are the single six and the 4" SP101, my favorite..In the back of the safe somewhere.
These are the 432PD, the Ruger Bisley and the Charter Arms Professional.

The third photo is my 32 magnum single six shooting the RCBS 100 gr swc over 3.0 grs of WST, runs about 950 fps, very accurate & minimal recoil. Then the same gun along with my Buckeye 32/20 that also has a 32 magnum cylinder. Built on the Blackhawk frame, when using the 32 magnum cylinder you almost....almost have to look down the barrel to make sure the bullet is gone. Do NOT do this!
Ermine with the 32/20 Buckeye & the 116 gr HP, this is a very fast load, could be used for deer with the heavy 135 gr bullet. These Ermine are called Weasels in the summer.
Big rock chuck, taken with the 8 shot 327 Blackhawk & the 116 gr GC HP. Utah depredation antelope taken at 74 yds with the 8 shot Blackhawk & the 135 gr Ferminator GC HP. Even though this is a HP it is a long shank bullet & holds up very well on game. The antelope was down in 10-15 yds & complete penetration.
Grouse with the single six 32 magnum & 3.0 grs of WST, very little meat damage with this load, you can eat the bullet hole. Blackhawk 32/20 target at 25 yds, extremely accurate with a cheap 1X4 scope. Shootist, limited edition edition Single Seven 327 with stag horn stocks, gun is reworked by Bobby Tyler of Friona, Texas, shoots better than I can.
S&W 4" 16-4 in 32 magnum & combat stocks, scary accurate with either the 100 gr RCBS or a 100 gr plain base HP. 5.5 grs of WST makes it whistle Dixie!! S&W 32 Long 5 shot pocket gun. The double action master, Bob with my 8 shot 38 Super & 128 gr HP's, had to wrestle it away from him, he's a snake shooting it double action. Here's Bob with a Rock Chuck with the 16-4.

Great writeup Dick.

There cannot be a whole lot of people who can say that they have taken game like speed goats with a .327. That is impressive. All the others as well.




That is impressive. Had to do a double take on that pic.

Never had one in .32ACP, but I do have an SP101 in .32 H&R and a Freedom Arms in .327 Federal.. I think the latter could light a Weber at 20 paces.. laugh laugh

Got the Ruger for my wife who - with her RN issues - cannot tolerate any stiffer recoil than that.. Handy little revolver though.

The other 3 32 H&R revolvers.
A single six my father in law used for cowboy action
a 4" SP101 and the 3" SP101. My idea of the perfect Kit Gun!

Here is a single six that I changed the grip on. My buddy talked me out of it before I shot this way. I really liked
The feel though

After a setback or two, I finally was able to get a few of these up and available.

100 grain Poly Coat wadcutters in .32 H&R.

They are in the classifieds if anyone wants some ammo for their little blasters!

Like shooting a .22 Magnum recoil wise.

This should be some outstanding 327 ammo & it would be fast handling in double action mode.

I just picked up a Colt Pocket Positive this past summer it shoots nice with factory loads ànd I got set up to reload.for.it. Anyone have experienced with the Charter Arms 3" 32?


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska

Thanks Idaho1945.

For someone who wants a 6 shot low recoil pocket revolver (versus 5 shots in a .38 Special J Frame), I think this would be a very good option. I have enjoyed shooting this ammo in the Ruger LCR. Quite a difference in recoil between a regular .38 Special load and the .32 WCs.

Mackay, what does the polycoat do? Does it help prevent leading?
