Reloading 38 Super - 9mm Bullets?

Sat Sep 12, 2020 11:32 am

Is it safe, acceptable or common practice To use 9mm bullets for reloading 38 Super? Is it just a matter of matching up acceptable diameter and grains to ensure it does not exceed the max velocity? I believe the length plays a role in it, but does that only effect accuracy? Thanks. Any other insight is appreciated, not wanting to ruin the bore or whatever else. I was looking at using this for doing it as it seams to coincide with measurements. I want to use TMJ copper plated.

When it comes to bullet types and grain weight use, would TMJ bullet grains required be equivalent to FMJ bullet grains that are listed in manuals? HP? XTP?

I just picked up 500rds of this PMC bronze, after you shoot it up it's some good brass for reloading too.
