    another thought that I had was this would make a great excuse to get into reloading, I could get into reloading and salvage the components.

    The bullets are a couple thou bigger than 357/38 special. It's super annoying.

    I have a little pump in 357. I shoot 38 special all the time, much cheaper. As a side note I have shot a lot of cattle in my life after using the 357 I won't use a 22lr again.

    .38 S&W is a notoriously anemic round too. I had a Colt Police Positive in .38 Victory (same caliber) and it chrony'd at 600 fps. No perceptible recoil at all. You could almost see the round. Anyways, if you fired it in a .38 Special or .357 Mag, it might almost perform like a squib. Not worth the risk. It's expensive ammo for what are usually very cheap revolvers. I think I paid $125 for the colt, and $200 for the Webley in .38 S&W

    I think every excuse is a good excuse to get into reloading, but I don’t know if you can salvage any of these components for anything but .38 s&w. I don’t have a .38 s&w, but if what Grimlock says in post 13 is accurate then you may be SOL.
