    Just picked up a new model 60-15, and was wondering if anyone out there has shot this model with full load 357, and what type of self defense loads are best as it will be the "house" gun.

    +P .38 Spl JHP will be the best house gun load.

    Full power .357 Mag in a snubnose will give you & the bad guy shock & awe when the first round of flash and muzzle blast smack you up side the head in the bedroom with the lights out.

    No reason you can't shoot full power .357 in your gun if you insist though.
    Remington does make a medium velocity Golden Saber .357 load designed for less recoil & blast in little guns.

    Try a few hot .357's in the little snubbie,and you will learn in a hurry. .38+P's work fine.

    Sw model 60-15

    I just bought a model 60-15 357 mag and have been wondering the same thing. Mine is stainless with a 3" barrel and I hear they handle the 357 load fine. Truth be told I have not shot it. Main reason for the buy is that I feel it is an exceptional pistol for the price and I want a revolver for carry in the woods and when camping. A better choice than an auto in my opinion. Fact is it's on lay away until I come up with the remainder $$$, at the local pawn shop.
    After checking on-line I think I got a good deal. It's in extremely good shape and cost me 400 + tax. I like knowing I can use the 357; 38 +p; 38 special and other variations of the 38 load. I'm thinking of getting a 357 mag rifle so I'll have compatibility between pistol & rifle should necessity dictate.
    Like I've said I have yet to shot it but it feels like it was made for my hand with those rubber pach grips.
    I may not constantly shoot 357 but it's great to know you can if you choose.
