Well---kind of depends on what you want to call a 38!!

38 short/long colt, 38 special bullet diameter .357-.358
38 S&W, 38 colt super police, 38/200 british service, .360 bullet
38WCF aka 38-40 Winchester .400-.401 bullet
36 cap and ball colt mdl 1851, 1862 and others, .375 roundball,
not sure what the conical bullet diameter was.

Also, some are measured on bore diameter, some on groove diameter.

Could they accurately measure the bullet diameter in 1892? Yes
