My favorite J frame is the Model 60. Stainless steel and in 38SPL +P.
Value of the XD v S&W J the XD would be a bit more than the J frame. JMHO.
As mentioned, very few I know who shoot a J frame (and I carry a 38+P version) like shooting 357 in such a light gun
I carry a J frame daily so I consider your trade to be a good one...
One of my all time favorites is a Model 60-9 in .357. I bought the gun new in 1997. It's been carried and shot a lot. I can say I have never put a .357 down range out of it. I generally carry the standard velocity .38 Specials and have shot .38+Ps a few times. Great thing about the .357 is you have options.
Its all personal preference, but I would rather have the J Frame as the XD.
