Use the forum's search feature (center/right in the green bar toward the top of the page). You'll find lots of past threads on loading the .38 S&W cartridge. Also one of our members, Missouri Bullet Co offers lead bullets that are correctly sized to .361". Various other members have provided loading data for both smokeless and black powder. ;)

Speer #13 has loads for .38 S&W in 110 & 125 jacketed, as well as 148 WC & 158 lead bullets. I would assume.
I bet the Lyman #29 has a bunch as well.
.357 jacketed or plated bullets will work fine, but as the Old Fuff posted, .361 bullets are the way to go if you load lead.

Ken Water's Pet Loads has a page and a half of loads listed. Lyman's #49 has a few. Lee #2 has none.

I apologize for not reading thoroughly, both good threads. I cast and load for the cartridge, great one for easy loading and accurate shooting.
