In this video we take a look at the Henry Big Boy in a somewhat odd caliber, .327 Federal Magnum. This caliber is basically a 32 S&W Long on steroids, with 115gr projectiles travelling at 1,500+ fps yielding over 600 ft/lbs of energy from a very light recoiling cartridge compared to 357 Magnum. Also, the smaller diameter allows for more capacity in a small frame revolver cylinder. In this Henry lever action, even the full power loads are like shooting gallery loads. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

  1. Till now, a .32-20 1873 or .32H&R Marlin were the only options for a .32 caliber bore repeater. I am definetly buying one of these.

    1. How you explained the “rook” rifle was perfect. The idea of loading them light is EXACTLY a huge advantage. .22LR is great…but can’t be reloaded…hence my love affair with a .32 caliber. 73grain-98grain bunny buster loads, up to 115 grain for deer.

    2. .32 caliber is so underappreciated, don’t see anyone jumping up to get hit by one. Tear down the rifle,polish it up, and it should run fine. Everyone I have read who owns one loves it and it shoots flawless. Longs might not cycle as well from what I have read.

  2. that recoil looks like it’s a 22, but with the punch of a .32 magnum cartridge. I smell a good levergun for home defense

  3. I bought the brass version and had nothing but feeding problems. Also if you happen to tilt the rifle towards the ejection port with a round on the carrier it will fall right on the floor. Sent it back to Henry and came back with same issues because nothing was physically wrong with the gun other than it’s a flawed design. The gun is built off of the same frame/action of the 357/44/45 big boys, even the loading slot in the tube is 45 colt sized.

  4. Federal Premium 85 grain Hydra-Shok JHP – MV 1330 fps, ME 334 ft. lbs.
    American Eagle 100 grain SP – MV 1400 fps, ME 435 ft. lbs.
    Speer 115 grain Gold Dot JHP – MV 1300 fps, ME 431 ft. lbs.
    I’ll stick with .357 Magnum. Despite all the hoopla…there is no comparison ballistic wise. Let’s compare the two using the same bullet weights.
