    Armybrat -- that 100 gr. Federal AE is the hottest loading I have tried in my 327's -- I currently shoot .327 in 4 pistols and a rifle. The 100 gr. AE is rated at 500 ft/lb, and the 85 gr. AE is rated at 400 ft/lb. I find that the 85's are much more comfortable to shoot in my handguns. In my Henry it is not an issue. The 100 AE jams up my original 3 inch SP101, but the 85 AE and .32 H&R Magnums run fine and are fun to shoot. YMMV. I hope you enjoy your new SP101 !!

    FYI, you can shoot other rimmed .32 ammo in .327 revolvers, like H&R Mag, 32 S&W -- the semi rimmed .32 ACP will fit, but it will not extract very well and can suffer from light strikes (in my experience).

    I'd personally like to see more 38 Special non +P around. The lightweight and alloy J Frames are just better without. Especially for my wife.

    Everything now days seems to be +P
    I get the wife's .38 at Target Sports USA................usually have a decent selection.

    I am loading my S&W Airweight with the new Ruger ARX 38 special non +p round...It has a light for caliber copper/polymer non expanding bullet that looks like a Phillips head screw driver tip.....The rounds are much lighter than lead hollow point and weigh 77 grains but produce almost 1200 fps out of a short snub barrel....The ballistic tests on this and the almost identical Black Hills round produce a large wound channel in gel then start to tumble and penetrate 12 to 14 inches...The recoil is very light with very little muzzle flash...This round is a good self defense round for someone who carries a light short barrel handgun and is recoil sensitive....

    For a non +p round, I go for heavy lead, 158 grn SJSP are my favorite. Something like this: https://www.luckygunner.com/38-speci...magtech-38c-50

    They no longer allow lead at most of our ranges. My wife rarely practices or goes to the range so I want her to shoot what she carries when she does shoot.

    It's messed me up on a lot of my guns that I preferred lead on. Especially 45 Colt.
