    I size to .357 for 9 mm cast bullets. The bullets are powder coated. Use the same bullets for 38 Special loads. With powder coating have never had any lead in the barrel.

    Some Mausers barrels shoulder on the face of the receiver and shoulder internal to the receiver just in front of the bolt locking lug space. The cutting of the barrel in front of the receiver will help for the first shoulder at the front of the...
