357/9mm

NM LOBO: Here's a trick I used to use when I tried loading and shooting 9mm bullets from 38s or 357s. Use the 38 caliber bullets. That trick used to work in reverse with my old Colt 38 snubnose. If you are going to handload, use the 38 caliber bullets in your 9mm cases. Use the expander die from your 38/357 reloading set to expand the 9mm cases so you can seat the bullets. The 9mm will take bullets up to 160 grains, so that is a possibility. It may be, as the happy old sailor notes, that the 9mm bullets are too small for the bore but handloading sort of defeats the purpose of being able to shoot inexpensive mil-surp 9mms from that revolver. See how well she does with some of the larger diameter bullets in the 9mm cases, and let us know if it works for you. This be Mikey.
