Ruger Introduces Two Revolvers Chambered In .327 Federal Magnum

January 18, 2010  | 

Sturm, Ruger & Company has introduced the Ruger New Model Blackhawk and the Ruger GP100 revolvers chambered in .327 Federal Magnum cartridge.

The .327 Federal Magnum offers near-.357 Magnum performance with less recoil, pushing a 100-grain American Eagle load at 1,655 feet per second out of the 5-1/2-inch barreled New Model Blackhawk, and 1,525 feet per second out of the 4.20-inch barreled GP100, according to Ruger.

In addition, cylinder capacities have been increased, with the New Model Blackhawk holding eight rounds and the GP100 holding seven.

"We worked with Federal Premium ammunition to introduce the first .327 Federal Magnum cartridge in our mid-sized SP101 revolver, and we're excited to expand this well-received round into our full-sized New Model Blackhawk and GP100 product lines," said Chris Killoy, Ruger's vice president of sales and marketing. "The performance of this round is remarkable, and the longer barrels and heavier weights of these two models ramp velocities to new levels and keep recoil minimal."
