.38 Smith and Wesson vs. .38-55-Can I use the .38 Smith and Wesson cartridge in the .38-55 without leading?
No, this cartridge cannot be used in the .38-55 rifle. The .38 Smith and Wesson is .358 Caliber and the .38-55 is .375 caliber. These are the diameters of the bullets, but there is a greater difference in shells. The .38-55 has a long, tapered shell and a much greater head diameter than the .38 Smith and Wesson.
