The aluminum cased ammo will not harm your revolver. I have been using Federal 125 grain Nyclads for several years but recently started experimenting with the Hornady 158 grain XTP jacketed hollow point. It is a standard velocity round running about 725 fps from my Colt Agent. Recoil is fairly mild allowing quick follow up shots and testing shows good penetration and expansion to about .526 diameter. I may start carrying that as my defensive load. Most .38's are regulated at the factory to shoot 158 grain to POA. My Agent does with this round.
