Ideal Bullets 358161 - This is the standard .38 Extra Long bullet. There has been much trouble about this cartridge. The old Ballard rifles were all bored and rifled for the O. L. bullet, which is .375, but all of the factory ammunition has a straight, one-sized ball .358 in diameter that fits the shell only. For such the Ideal Tool No. 1 is made, which is correct for the Wesson rifles, but not for the Ballards, as the ball will drop through the barrel. For the Ballards we would recommend bullet No. 35870, which may be seated in the regular No. 1 tool.
