Different deal there. I shoot magnum/super-magnum loads in all my Rugers especially my SP101. My older Smiths however only get fed standard .38 special loads, even the .357.

Ziggy, I don't know off hand what years of production coincide with those serial/model #'s, but every time I have a dilemma like that Google helps me out.

Model #418950 when you open the cylinder it is stamped mod.36 and
#2314 any info on this would greatly help me.
Ziggy, I just checked my S&W catalog and can't find those numbers. The numbers inside the crane the frame in that area are generally the part and model number. The serial number is on the heel/bottom of the grip frame. Give me that number and I'll look it up for you.

Don't shoot +p in this gun. You maybe able to fire a few through it, but it was not designed for this. In short or long run it will fail with a really bad consequences. I really wouldn't. It is a beautiful gun.

Oh yeah, for the OP, just shoot .38's.
