Now, if that's the case, how did the British get away with running .360 diameter 200gr bullets in k-frames?
The 200 grain bullet used by the Brits was actually a bit larger at .361-.362. They got away with it because it was used in the .38 S&W, a different cartridge than the .38 S&W Special. It has a much shorter case.
The .38 S&W is on the far right. Next to it is the .38 Long Colt.
