    I am converting an 1851 Navy Six to a 38Colt Kisrt Navy. Im new to reloading. My Question is, will a modern 310 tool, setup with the stock 38spl /357 310 dies, make 38 colt ammo? If not what modifacations would/could make it work? I work in a machine shop so i have access to equitment. Thank you for any imput you may have!

    To help you discuss it, it's a .36-caliber 1851 Navy, no such thing as an 1851 Navy Six. :)
    Also, if it's a brass-framed repro, don't use a cartridge conversion cylinder in it.
