    38 - 40 Mould Question

    I was inventorying things yesterday and came across a 38-40 - 160 Magma mould I acquired.
    From Magma's table I see they are 401/403 diameter. 40 S&W is also 401/403.

    Would there be any use for these RN boolits in 40 S&W reloads?

    Just need some advise.

    Think you can, or think you can't. Either way your right.

    They will work just fine in .40 S&W with 5 grains of Bullseye!

    Some guys love them in a revolver with moon clips. In a semi, they are pretty much 100% feeding in anything.
    EVERY GOOD SHOOTER NEEDS TO BE A HANDLOADER.
