I shoot 38's in my 357's and only use magnums for carry, household guns, and to fire a few at the range.

Winchester White Box 130 grain FMJ 38's in the 100 round "economy pack" can be had where we live for $30 or less per 100.
My 38 Special chambered pistols I generally leave loaded with Remington 148 grain full wad cutters. This is an excellent defense round, the full diameter flat nose cuts nice holes in tissue, whereas round noses just kind of push the tissue out of the way.
Just because a caliber is not the latest craze, and may be 100+ years old, doesn't necessarily make it bad.

Ive got a few older model Smith and Wesson 38s and 357 in the stable, but recently picked up a Taurus 605. That little gun is great! only thing I did to it was add hogue grips and painted the front sight blaze orange...….absolutely a great shooting gun.
Made a trip to the range and shot both of em again over the weekend (what better way to spend 4th of july weekend!). I'm still working on my double action trigger pull, looked up some techniques on the internet and it seems to be improving but I need a lot more practice. More than likely my next ammo buy is going to include some budget .38 as .357 is rather expensive. Both the M&P 9c and M&P Shield 9mm where more accurate than the shooter and loads of fun. I can tell that I need to do this more often. When I start out I'm rusty and inaccurate which improves as the session goes. Well inaccurate is the wrong phrase, not as accurate as I like to be fits better, I do still hit the target.

I have acquired a Ruger RPR in 338 . But have not fired it and it will be some time before I have time to mess with it. It is a beast.
