    Do any of you reload for the .38S&W cartridge? I might have a chance to pickup a revolver rather cheap and would rather spend the money on reloading dies and stuff than $30 a box of ammo.

    My main question is, can you safely reload the 38S&W with .358 bullets? I know that the older cartridge is .360 but thought I had heard that you could use lighter .358 bullets. I don't find many souces for .360 bullets and I am not casting yet.

    my magma mold drops(158 gr) at .360 so if you need some until you get set up let me know.I would just tumble lube and shoot as cast.
