Be warned, though, that if you shoot .38s in it, you will need to clean the chambers well, as it will build up residue inside them at the end of the .38 hull, which can cause trouble getting .357s chambered properly. I've had this happen from as little as 50rds when shooting lead bullets over Unique. Brush well with Hoppes or Blue Wonder to get most of it out, and Flitz on a patch wrapped brush works well for getting the last bit.NYPD in AZ said:All .357 maggies will accept any .38 Special load as well.
This is primarily why my last several revolver purchases have been 38spl. 38's just shoot better in a gun designed for them, and it's all I shoot anyway.captainamerica said:I'm not reloading but have had similar accuracy and lead fouling issues with 38's in my 2" 605. Until these posts I hadn't really thought of the difference with 38's and .357's. Good information.
