The revolver will take any factory load you can find.

Nice looking 28-2 you have. Fortunately, living in Southern Arizona gives us old desert dawgs a number of large shows every month or other month. This past weekend there were some good N-frame buys and some with outrageus prices. You'll enjoy shooting your Smith, especially when it's zeroed in at 100 yards.
The only load to avoid is the infamous double (or triple) charge of fast powder in a handload. And I'm not even sure that a double charge would seriously damage one. I've never seen a picture of a blown up Model 28. AFAIK all the 357 kaboom pictures I've seen were K or L frames.
There aren't ANY factory 357 loads that are going to do any harm to that big old N-frame revolver - no matter how many of them you touch off. Shoot as many of the hottest rounds you can afford. Your hands and wrists will give out LONG before you hurt one of those tanks with 357 ammo.

Always looking for a deal on more reloading components & ammo. I once tried to see things from the liberal perspective - but I discovered I'm not flexible enough to get my head up my ...
I would avoid any .357 magnum factory LEAD BULLET loadings. You might be OK shooting .38 spl. lead bullet ammo in your gun, but in my experience ( not opinion) when they crank it up to magnum level velocities...you get a lot more leading than you want.
Very nice find. The biggest problem with Model 28s is that they accumulate.
