Going to the range tomorrow with 38, 38+pm, and 357.
Interested to know other folks ammo choices and experience with this revolver.
I like my Model 60 no dash 38special (1968). I generally use 158 semi-wad cutter in mine (no +P in mine).

get the clip draw belt clip, you will love it. look around and get a bobbed hammer. they drop in. those two things make it a great carry gun. i know that is the way my 1980 model 60 is set. i carry hydro shok +p+ 38 sp. the old model 60 were 38 sp only.

Red State State of Mind
Good gun. The magnums should be interesting.
I owned one, but traded it last year. 38 and 38+p are all fine. I found 357 uncomfortable to shoot. Your experience may vary. For practice, Winchester Whitebox 130gr and Remington 120gr jacketed rounds. For carry, 38 or 38+p hollowpoints - take your pick, everything from Federal Hydrashocks to the old standby, 158gr lead hollowpoints.
Some folks like the Speer loadings. I have tried them and did not like them - IMO, the left some pretty hefty marks on the back of the frame. Your experience may be different.
Great choice, have fun with it.
Good choice, it's an "old standard", CONGRATS!
I like the Gold Dot 38 Spl 135 Grain JHP's "Short Barrel Load" in my snubbies. Like someone else said, the .357 Magnums should be "interesting". I've done it, don't care to do it anymore.
I have a Model 60 in 357 mag without the lock. It shoots to the point of aim and is just plain nice looking!! Steve48
