Probably relates more to revolvers but I always shoot 357 out of my 357. I reload so I'll use 38 special loads in 357 brass and the velocities and recoil are the same as a 38. Shooting 38's out of a 357, especially lead, tends to build up a nasty ring in front of the forcing cone. It sucks to clean and makes feeding 357's really hard. I imagine a rifle might be different but I'd gather that a similar problem would happen.

I'd just shoot 357's out of it. You can ways buy light reloads if none are commercially available.

They're not liberals, they're leftists. Please don't use the former for the latter. Liberals are Locke, Jefferson, Burke, Hayek. Leftists are progressives, Prussian state-socialists, fascists. Liberals stand against the state and unequivocally support liberty. Leftists support state tyranny.
