I have a new model Blackhawk in .357 (6.5"), and it eats the same top end handl0oads that my Model 28 does. Loads that are too hot to use in a model 19 or 66 (or, it turns out in a Contender or even a Marlin carbine!)

The Ruger will shoot these loads, recoil, and then look at you and say "What? That's ALL you got?"

Seriously, don't worry about wearing out a Blackhawk with any factory load, even the hot ones.

Sure, it can be done, I suppose, but it will take a LOT of rounds, several times the cost of the gun in ammo, before you get even close...
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
