      It says the cylinder has to be swapped. My guess is they’re either using moon clips or maybe the 9mm cylinder has some kind of specially bored chambers that will hold a rimless round in place.

    I used to reload these “different” calibers, and as reloaders already know, the projectiles are the same size, the only difference being the weight and length. I would use the 115 grain .357 bullets for my 9mm cartridges. Just running them through the resizing dies would make everything “OK”. I used a Ruger .357 Security Six, revolver, and practiced with .38 wadcutters. Later on, I started loading 9mm and realized that the projectiles were practically all the OD. And 115 grains in a 9mm, isn’t too much.

    Ruger has had this multiple caliber offering for years, the .38/.357 use then same cylinder, the 9mm a counterbored one that rests the front of the case against an edge in the cylinder, stopping it from falling through. .357 bullet dia for the .38 and .357, .355 for the 9mm.
    I bought a convertible SS Ruger Blackhawk in 1972 chambered for these rounds.
