    Reloading for a K frame revolver

    I had quick question about reloading for K frames I know they are not made to shoot alot of full powered 357 loads through them, but I load 125gr medium powered loads about 1200fps for my other guns will that damage the K frame over time.

    I'd not expect such a load to harm a S&W K-Frame gun even with many rounds of it fired over many years. I don't currently have a K-Frame .357 Magnum but only fired magnum handloads through the ones I've had in the past. They were none the worse for wear.
