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?

"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."
- GEORGE WASHINGTON (from his Farewell Address, 1796) .

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.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
