9x23 dies

So far we have everything we need to convert a 1911 gov model in 9mm to 9x23 except loading dies. Bullets and brass, no problem but we need the dies and a good recipe for loading. I've tried everywhere to no avail. Any suggestons where to look?

Won't .38Super dies work? I'm sure that the .38Super is a 9X23. I know the two are different where the brass is concerned, but the external measurements are the same I believe.

9X23 DIES

Hornady, Lyman, and RCBS all offer 9x23 dies.
