Did you look at a stainless Charter Arms Pug .44spl DA Only?
I've heard a lot of + things about the 5 shot Pug revolver.
Charter Arms QC has been +/- in the last few years but it's improved.
The .44spl DA Only model is a good value too.
For rounds, I'd check the Magsafe or Glaser Safety Slug, the Corbon DPX, the Buffalo Bore line, or the Speer Gold Dot 200gr JHP.
PS: A stainless Rhino snub in .357magnum or a Ruger LCR .357magnum may work too(with a CT lasergrip).
