Reaming barrels

Is there a preference in barrel chambers between the 9mm and 38 super when you want to ream out to 9x23

Re: Reaming barrels

Either will work. The advantage of starting with a super barrel is that you can still use .38 super in it as well.

Re: Reaming barrels

Both will work but given a choice I'd go with the 9mm preferable with the 9mm barrel shortchambered. 38 Super is a straight case.384 .od', .... 9x23 starts at .3926 and tapers. And the 38 Super has a rim that measures .406 that the barrel hood must be cut for. Sometimes an extractor set for 9mm won't work with the 38 Super and vise versa, sometimes it will. Chambered correctly for 9x23 ,I would load 9mms to 9 major and forget the 38 Super
