Being a noob, I don't want to ask too many stupid questions, but...

I just saw that Ruger is making a new GP100 that will be chambered for .327 fed mag. What is the advantage of that? Isn't ammo even tougher to find in that flavor? I don't get it.

OK I have the SP101 model, it kicks *ss, and can use 32 long and 32 h&r mag. Ammo is not hard to find ................. on line. This SP100 is a 7 shoot now thats cool as it's not any bigger then a standard 357 model with 6 shoots. I bet the recoil is more controlable with the SP100.
Also good luck getting it, it's not on our, "safe to play with" list.

The extra ammo in your cylinder is always a good thing.

I wish it was a six shooter. Can't convert it to 9mm now :(

Lower recoil on the .327 (and 32SWLong and 32H&RMag) and very easy to control for those who are recoil sensitive, ie. injury, strength, etc.
If you reload, it's economical.

If you don't ask stupid questions, you'll never stop being a noob! ;)
