oscardeuce: You have a S&W Victory model revolver made between September 1944 and 1945, mainly for military contracts. The V in the serial number stands for Victory, the S stands fro Safety, after a fatality on a USN ship when an early Victory model was dropped and discharged, an internal hammer block safety was introduced, guns with this modification are marked with an SV prefix.

The correct ammunition for your gun is standard velocity .38 special ammunition. S&W recommends against using PlusP (higher pressure) ammunition in revolvers made before 1958.
