How strong is this pistol? Would like to load 173 Grain cast Keith or 200 grain cast roundnose.I do not want to make it a 357!! Would like better loads for carry,this is the smallest caliber pistol I own and would feel better with heavyer bullets.Thank You

The Astra is a good, serviceable gun-but I wouldn't push it with hotter than standard .38 special loads.
