If you want to load .357 diameter bullets like the Speer 158 gr. JHP or 110 gr. GDHP just use a .357 expander plug.

All the bullets I tried seated straight and had no feeding issues in the gun.

YMMV.

Thanks.

I've also been using the RCBS 9mm expander die, and I believe FTC is too.

While I'm at it, I've been meaning to ask about the pros & cons of using .355/.356/.357 Jacketed bullets. Should I slug my barrel to see what it actually is? I have read conflicting info about what diameter bullet the 9x25 Dillon is designed to use. Some manufacturers 9mm bullets are strictly .355, and some are strictly .356, so I'm a little lost.
