You want to have a good gun smith look at the cylinder first. I had a friend do a similar thing to a Smith 24,,, There was no real noticeable damage, he cleaned the gun and several days later shot it some more.
Luckily the gun worked fine but when he went to reload some rounds he noticed several of the cases had a strange bulged look to them,,,,,
It was very difficult to see when looking down the chamber but the gun had a bulged cylinder and was unsafe to shoot.
That was a year ago and the gun is still in the process of getting rebuilt.
If there was enough pressure to blow up a barrel on a Smith then that chamber saw a LOT of pressure. I would be interested in seeing the case.
