Shoot it with 357 ammo until you are used to it and have the sights the way you like them. I have seen so many people shoot a lot of 38 ammo in their 357. Then when they want to shoot 357 ammo they can't hit anything. This is my opinion on shooting 38 ammo in a 357. 38 ammo is great for introducing new shooters to a revolver. Personally I have a 9mm to plink with something light caliber. When I shoot a 357 I want to shoot a 357.

I have a two Blackhawks I really like. Both shoot federal 158 gr JSP very well. My 6.5" Blackhawk shoots CorBon 200 gr cast bullets the best. The CorBons do not make a big difference 4.5" Blackhawk. It could be the 6.5" provides a much better sight plane.

I'd stick with that plan--

Start out with 38 spl practice ammo and load some +P self defense ammo for home protection. Dont get her on 357 until she is proficient and used to recoil. Winchester White Box 110 grain PD is a mild 357 load. Most of the 125 grain and 158 grain defense loads are pretty hot. A Taurus 66 is not designed to shoot 357 in large quantities. You need a Ruger GP100 or S&W 686 for that.

I mean, it is designated as a .357 pistol. I could see if it were only designated as a .38 and you were talking about +P ammo.
It won't take long for your sister to start craving the 357. When she sees you shooting 357 rounds and the muzzle blast makes the grass lay down in front of you. My wife shot about 200 38 spl rounds then she tried the 357. After she got comfortable with the 357 she started picking up a box of 357 ammo on the way home after a bad day. She walks down to our shooting area and shoots the entire box of 357 ammo. We are talking about a woman that is very timid with weapons. She has been eyeballing my 44 mag lately.
