Might send the pressures up a bit, all things considered.  Don't you think?  I'm a big fan of .452 bullets in a .451 barrel, but that's about as far as I'm willing to go.

I wouldn't be worried that much, seeing as how .30 Carbine pressures are more than double .32-20 and .32 H&R pressure, and Ruger already offers the Blackhawk in .30 Carbine.

    Now if Ruger were to offer a 327 magnum 5 shot single action Bearcat, I suspect that a fair number of folks would begin carrying a single action for self defense!

    Some already pay well for the possibility!

    Just a passing nod to a time when "bicycle revolver" was part of the vernacular!

    My great grandmother apparently carried on either in her purse on wagon trips or in the pocket of her apron when she was out of sight of the farm house.
