Is the .38 Cal bullet the same size as the .357 Mag. I'm looking to buy some bullets from Cabelas and just wanted to make sure I bought the correct ones. I'm going to be reloading both .38 Special and .357 Mag. I know the brass is just a little bit longer on the .357.

Also, are the die sets the same for both of these calibers, or do I have to buy different sets.

Thanks,

Same bullet.
Same dies, with adjustment for the different caselength. If the brand of die you want does not say .38-.357; get .38 Special. Dies for .38 Special will adjust for .357 but not vice versa.

Say, do you have a loading manual?
They usually spell out such things.

I have a couple of loading manuals. I just figured it would be a quick and easy response. Thanks for the answers.
