I was wondering if the 82's have the Taurus 66 .357 mag frame, and that's why they can shoot .38 Special +P ammo regularly?
Does the Taurus company heat treat the 82 frames differently than the 66 frames? It would make more sense to me that they just heat treat one frame for a .357, and use it for similarly sized revolvers in .38 Special.
Would anyone care to offer their opinion?
