90gr .355 bullets

My wife was walking through a store and saw 4 boxes of 90 gr Hornady XTP in .355 so she bought them knowing that I'd about run out of 9mm bullets the week before. I've never even thought about 90 gr bullets and now I have 400.

I see some loads for 9mm with these bullets but they appear to be more for a .380.
Are these good in a 9mm or would I be better off getting some .380 dies?
We both shoot .380 and 9mm. I received 1000 115 gr fmj 9mm bullets yesterday so it's not these or nothing.

It's what I load in my .380. I'm sure they would be fine in your 9 but now you have an excuse to buy some .380 dies.

I agree, you may as well start reloading 380. You'll pay off the dies in no time, since 380 ammo is fairly spendy.
