So here's a few, what are probably stupid, questions.
I have a bunch of 9mm 125gr RN cast bullets, sized to .356. Can I reload these safely to be fired out of a .357 magnum revolver? Does anyone have any experience doing this? I understand all barrels vary slightly in diameter, and its best to slug them to know exactly what I'm dealing with. But I really don't know how to slug a barrel, and I probably don't have the proper equipment anyway. Everything I've read says this is an acceptable size, but I want to make sure.
So, can these bullets be reloaded for .38 Special / .357 Magnum, safely? I'm not worried about match grade accuracy right now.
Also, the only powder I have right now is Silhouette. According to Ramshot's reloading data from their website
, the only recipe listed for Silhoutte in this bullet size (cast, as well) is for flat nosed in .38 Special. The bullets I have are round nosed. Should I use the same data? Or not use these bullets at all?
Also, can I use the exact same data [recipe] that I would for .38 Special in .357 Magnum sized cases?
Please excuse my ignorance. Thanks for your help.
