    Is it the general opinion that I shouldn't fire +P ammo in my 605 .357 ever? Or is it a matter of I could fire it occasionally?

    Is your question about .357 +P ammo? As far as I know there is no SAAMI spec for 357 +P.
    If you are asking about 38 special +P ammo, then you shoot as many of those as you can afford in your 357 revolver.
    38 special +P is about 10% more powerful than standard pressure 38 special, but still significantly less pressure than standard 357 magnum ammo.
    Shooting 38 special +P in a gun designed for 357 magnum is actually taking it easy on the gun- and the shooter too since the 38 special +P has less recoil.

    Mine is loaded with 38 Special +P Remington right now.

    You most definitely can shoot 38sp +P in your 605. It's a 357. 357 pressures are way beyond 38spl +P pressures.
    PT22, 85 Poly, 865, 605, M44.... what's next?!
