If you load .38 Spl into a .38 S&W revolver the bullets stick out so far you can't rotate the cylinder. I found a pile of .38 Spl shell casings at the range one day and every one was bulged and split along the full length. I surmised that someone had been shooting .38 Spl wadcutters (a short overall length) out of a .38 S&W. As far as I know both Winchester and Remington still make the ammo but in 145 and 146 gr loads only. They are a good bet for the handloader if you can find cases and the proper diameter bullets. The .38 S&W is an obsolete and mostly forgotten caliber.
