.38 S&W, to my knowledge, was primarily used in S&W, Iver Johnson, and other brands in too break revolvers. I believe S&W made a double action, maybe a model 30, in the round too. The ammo, I believe, is pretty hard to find and probably expensive when you do find. A buddy of mine had an Iver Johnson chambered for it and it was very pleasant too shoot.
