    A friend gave me several hundred bullets he's had stored for years. They are round nose, fmj bullets. I thought initially they were 9mm because of their appearance but they're all 150 grain and they measure .356. I'm thinking they're something other than 9mm. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I think they are for 38 super from my quick Google search.

    If they are smooth side (no cannelure) then they are probably for 38 Super. Nosler makes a nice 150gr for 38S. You can shoot them in your 9 using loads for 147gr.

    Thanks for the responses. No cannelure. 38 super looks like the most likely candidate. Will load them up for a 9 and give them a try. Thanks again.
