I have two 38/357 and both are pretty comfortable to shoot. Both are model 66, only one is a Taurus and the Other a Smith and Wesson. The Smith is a bit heavier, but better quality, Nichol plated.. and the Taurus shoots just as good, heavier trigger, with more creep, but both are very dependable.. The Smith and Wessons have a lot more internal parts, and the trigger has been worked by a previous owner, it breaks clean, and crisp, but he over did it, when shooting single action, you can physically break the hammer by pushing on it... Not very safe, and extra care is prudent.. I have yet to dig into it.. I mostly shoot my semi's or my 22 revolvers..

Thanks fellas. I think I've gotten enough information to make a decision.

I can't think of the model number at the moment but I've got a 38/357 S&W with a 6" barrel and rose handle. It's pretty! Shoots great too.

I also have several Rugers, which one isn't a full-size revolver like you asked, but my favorite revolver is a snub noised hammerless SP101 38/357. It's a kick *** little gun and with 357s it puts out a flame. Solid gun, and was my first carry gun before my Glock.

S&W 686 is probably the "go to" revolver for many people including a lot of competitors.

I have a S&W SSR which is their "pro series" 686. That basically means it falls between the "regualr" lineup and the performance center lineup. Great revolver, shoots far better than I can and I personally like the look with the sloped lower lug.

Colt or Smith&Wesson are hard to beat.

As I have said before, I love my single action Blackhawk for it's simple and reliable action, and it's comfortable to carry while hiking. Living in the "Kommifornicate" jungle, I am limited as to what I carry out when camping or hiking, but with +P loads and even snake shot, it has served me well since the 80's. I also have a Marlin 1894C rifle in .357. so the two make a heavy punch when handloads are used for Pigs, or Javalina.
