    I also have a .38 Special and a .38 S&W barrel for "The Infamous Bunny Gun." The small powder capacity of the similar .38 S&W cartridge is an advantage for this purpose and is the prudent gunsmith’s choice to safely restore black powder action...

    For my low noise whacker John Taylor built for me a .45 ACP / .455 single-shot. He used a .38-40 reamer to rough the chamber, so that the barrel also has a rim seat. The shoulder of the .38-40 reamer provides a .455" diameter throat with 6-1/2...

    158 SWCs designed for the .38 Special when crimped into the normal crimp groove intrude too deeply into the powder space. Much better to seat the bullet out to about 1.20-1.25" cartridge OAL and crimp in the lube groove. OR get one of the Accurate...

    If you are cutting down the 7.62x40 brass from LC or other military cases, your necks may need to be thinned as well. If you are using ready-made from Wilson or other brass sellers than disregard.

    Large rifle primers have a greater cup height and will stand "proud" in .44-40 brass unless you use a primer pocket uniformer to increase the depth of the primer pocket so that rifle primers can be seated flush with the case head. Large pistol is...

    Bullet weight is not the problem. The long shank length of the Hornady .32 S&W revolver bullet intrudes VERY deeply into the powder space and will spike pressure. Heavy cast bullets which are correctly designed FOR the .32 ACP do not produce a...
