Lee makes dies for this caliber you dont need to use 9mm dies to seat or crimp !

Great brass for Cowboy Action Shooting. Spouse and I have used it in our revolvers for several years. Have answered a lot of questions about it due to its appearance and have recommended it to many of my friends. It will take a lot of Cowboy Action reloadings before it wears out.

Great brass for use in 327TRR8 8 shot 357 mag smith "N" frame. I use it in USPSA revolver division and the short brass is great. I have loaded the brass about 8 times and it appears to be is great shape and ready for many more reloads.

Avid ICORE shooter. Made the switch from 38 special cases to these 38 short colts. Much easier to speed load these gems. There about the same length as a 9MM. Easy to eject and even easier to reload. Other benefits include the ability to carry more Loaded moonclips on your belt when using the north mountain moonclip holder. I would call accuracy the same at the 38 special cases. Have to use 9MM bullet seating and crimping dies when reloading.
