Many years ago, I bought it, then got into handloading, as I found .38 Special too wimpy and full magnums were nuts. (flames, too much recoil) .38 +P level with heavier bullets was about perfect. I started handloading "light magnums"; to have the full length magnum case and a bit more accuracy than I could get from 38 special loads. Now, I want to get back into handloading for this and my Redhawk (44 Mag) but primers seem to not be available. That brings me to the question: what "managed recoil" factory ammo are you guys shooting. I did a quick search at Midway and found that only one load is made, and it is an exotic defense load that costs $2/round. I'm wondering what else is out there and where to get it.
