    +P but don't think +P+ I would recommend using in it.

    Watch out for those hot loads with cast bullets, the barrel will lead-up and it's a bitch to get clean again.

    IS there as SAAMI standard for .357+P? I'm sure you can shoot any SAAMI rated round in it.

    Ditto. I thought at a glance the OP was asking about .38 special +P and +P+, but with all the "deer grenade" type ammo out there you never know. Guys still ask which Garret .44 magnum load is safe for this and that and I don't think they are safe for anything really.

    Is there a savings to use 38 Special +P+ instead of 357 Magnums?

    There is no SAAMI standard for .38 +P+. I would recommend not playing with someones experment and just run .357.

    I agree with the other responders to the OP, that the question is somewhat confusing. From the question, I'm guessing this is not a hand loader, but from what I've researched, +p+ .38 would be either a marketing hype or maybe a wildcat hand load.
    Unless you are a hand loader, I wouldn't mess with +p+ in .38's. If you do hand load, then a heavy loaded .38 might be fun to experiment with, but why not just down load a .357 some. It is my understanding that the original +p+ .38 morphed into the .357, therefore the .357 is already a +p+ load. They made the case a little longer mainly so some one would blow up an old .38 revolver with the heavier load. Your Rossi rifle should be way stronger than any small frame .38 though.
    As far as using someone's hand loads, I wouldn't again. I did once and screwed up a good PT-111. Taurus fixed it, but I'm more careful with what I shoot now.
    If our lawmakers have our best interest in mind, why do they keep trying to take away our personal protection? Pappy used to say "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything."

    .357 Magnum standard loads aren't anything to laugh about especially if yer on the recieving end(In this season it's better to give than recieve any way).

    With so many great loads from various factories why roll the dice with a great rifle at stake???
