    Because .38's are still awesome revolvers.....and as for .357's....cheaper to shoot for practice with .38's,
    and when you are done with that....load it up with mags for carry or for nightstand duty....I do it all the time.

    I shoot a Ruger SP101 with a 3" barrel. I bought it to shoot 357magnum, and that is what I will mainly shoot in it. I have no problem with the recoil at all. Since I also own a S&W model 15 38spl, I probably will put a few 38's through the SP.
    Thorough cleaning is needed when shooting 38spl in 357 revolvers. Fouling from the shorter 38 can cause difficulty loading, or hard extraction with the 357.

    If you have a 357 why would you go out and buy a 38?
    Having a 357 is like having two guns, two guns in one. You have an option of what you want to shoot from it. You have an option of what you want to spend on ammo.
    The point is you have the choice of shooting either or. And with the government being the way they are and ammo prices being the way they are, it is good to be able to shoot lots of 38 for the practice, some 357 for the familiarity and then carry the 357 as CCW.
