Just picked up a Smith M&P 340-13oz scandium frame 357. I'm having trouble finding full power loads that dont "unseat" the bullets due to the heavy recoil. Any suggestions?

Treat it like a .38 rated for plus-p? :D
Seriously, that's a tough one. I had an AirLite Ti J-frame in .38, and the heavy loads were too uncomfortable for me.

I have a S&W 642 and the 38 special +P ammo is almost to much to handle out of it. I shoot midrange ammo for practice and reserve the high power stuff for carry. Even though tyour gun is made for 357, you may have to opt for 38 +P to keep the bullets in the cases. I definately would not want to shoot one of the light weight Jframes loaded with full house 357s. OUCH!!!!!
