I have loaded hundreds of jacketed .357 bullets in my 9mms, at max load, with multiple powders and without any signs of excessive pressure. Both my barrels slug at .355. The idea that the .002 difference will create unsafe pressure where none existed before is speculation based. It also assumes that barrels never run slightly small, which they do. People are constantly shooting jacketed bullets that are .001-.002 oversized down their barrel without even realizing it.

Your OAL will be different but the same can be said for any bullet. I used 110gr and 125gr Remington SJHP and 125gr XTPs. You will also have to ignore the canellure because it will cause your bullet to have much too short of an OAL. This is an example of a 125gr SJHP loaded into a 9mm.
