I can't imagine a .357 Magnum that can't take a steady diet of .357 Magnum rounds. My Colt King Cobra has been fed "hot" .357 Magnums since 1968 and it's never had a problem of any sort.

Colts and Rugers were built a lot stronger than the model 19/66. A S&W N frame .357 (model 27 or 28) did not have the same inherent weakness. I shoot anything in my Colt Troopers as well. The only rounds that could cause trouble in the Smith's were the hot 125 grain .357 loads. The S&W forum has detailed info on this as well as pictures of damaged forcing cones and flame cut top straps...

I bet they could "take" it but I'll admit it. . . I baby my Smiths, but they are all older and in near mint condition and I wanna keep them that way (I know, excuses huh ). Don't get me wrong I still shoot 'em with all types of loads, just in moderation. I got plenty of Rugers for truck, mountain around the state guns they get abused and they like it.
