Default Question on reloading 9mm

I was getting desperate the other day trying to find bullets to reload 9mm Luger and all I could find was Barry's Preferred Plated Bullets in 147gr RN. I bought a box of 250 but realized there was no diameter indication on the box. When I looked up their website, they indicate that these bullets are .356" when what I was looking for was .355"
Can these bullets be safely loaded for 9mm Luger?

Yes, they are safe to reload in a 9mm but if you don't feel comfortable with them I'd be happy to take them off your hands.

All 9mm bullets are .356. The bore diameter is .355. The bullet diameter should always be .001 over bore diameter to insure proper bite on the rifling.
