I like both makes, though I happen to have more S&W's. But I get very irritated by the repeated nonsense that Rugers are somehow superstrong and cannot possibly blow up.
Believe it or not, both companies routinely destroy their own and their rival's guns in testing. Neither releases the results, which they certainly would do if their guns proved superior.
Rugers are strong, well-made guns, but it is safe to say that any load that will blow up an S&W will do the same to a Ruger. I have seen a couple of Rugers blown up by people who believed that Rugers could never be destroyed by any load. Wrong.
