I shoot 148 gr standard pressure wadcutters out of my .38 spl j-frame. Recoil is minimal. Heavier or plus p loads will kick more. Snubbies are great carry guns, but demand that you practice with them to maintain any type of accuracy or follow up ability.

I have a Rossi 38 snubby that I purchased some 12+ years ago. It shoots very accurate. Getting tougher to get factory wad cutters around here. I refuse to do reloads so I am in the market for 500 rounds or so.

According to the manufacturer, you should not shoot +P loads in a Rossi 38 Special.

Off topic but curious. If taurus owns rossi why is it still called rossi?

It's like another product line. Built by one under another name. Like armscor products if I am not mistake.

Rossi is a Brazilian gun company that was bought out by Taurus. My .38 was manufactured in Brazil. I don't know if Taurus keeps the brand there now or not.

Rossi makes a good gun, in revolver anyway. Look at it this way, Taurus had always been hit or miss. They bought Rossi, and suddenly Rossi had more market presence and Taurus quality improved.

I had a .357 snub. Great little gun. I'd still have it if I hadn't gotten desperate for money.

If by "share" you mean that they designed their guns around the good looks of a Smith, sure.

They may even be using old Smith equipment, like sistema, the Brazilian 1911's in the way they used old auctioned off colt equipment and designs under license by colt.
