I got a model 27-3 .357 magnum for christmas.  A 50th anniv. commerative with gold inlaid.

I have no safe queens so I will shoot it.  Not much, but I will become familiar with it.

Since it is the large frame (N), what are the hottest rounds I can get for this.  It won't be used for anyhting but shits and giggles, and plinking.  

Pic is avail on GD on my post.

Cor-Bon makes supposedly the hotter factory ammo these days. There's some hunting loads up in the 180gr area that's a handfull.

I have a 28 & they're a load of fun to shoot. I wouldn't necessarily load it up on the hottest stuff I could find though. Just enjoy that fine piece of workmanship.

That gun, if it were mine, would probably get more wear from fondling than shooting.
Even some .38 wadcutters for accuracy would be fun to plink with. (at less expense)
I think Santa gave me your shirt...and you got my magnum by mistake!
A classic since 1935, Bobs right, enjoy!

Thanks guys.  I'm starting out with some plain plinking stuff, 125grn umc stuff.

I won't shoot it alot, but would like to have some hot loads for it when i do.

Thanks again.
