Default 125gr .357

So I heard that using any .357 mag round under 125gr could damage a revolver like my taurus 627. Any one here know of anything like this??

Bogus information. If you don't feel comfortable, box up all the under 125 grain ammo you have for your .357 mag and send it to me.

I have shot this through Ruger Blackhawks and Smith & Wesson wheel guns, no problems and no damaged pistolas.

They like to replicate, it starts with one and before you know happened you have half a dozen laying around.

Enjoy your new to you shooter.

It appears you have yet to properly introduce yourself to FTF. . Please stop by the Introductions section sometime and spill some beans.

Welcome aboard.

If you just bought the revolver, then you should have an owner's manual.

My suggestion is to use what they recommend.

Remember, lighter bullets have a different POI than heavier bullets.

Perhaps you (or your source) heard about the "flame cutting" happening on the Scandium-frame S&W ultra-ligthweight snubbies. That can occur with very lightweight bullets and full powder charges. Not sure if 125 grain is what is talked about with that subject. So much flash and flame exits the cylinder when firing that the flame can "cut" the top strap of the revolver.
I KNOW that does NOT happen with my SP101, and I use 125 grain bullets all the time (at this time they are easier to get), after firing a couple hundred lead bullets for target practice, then following up with thirty or forty jacketed HP 125 grain bullets, to shoot out the lead which may have accumulated in the barrel.
So, perhaps it matters what gun one is using.
