Should I keep a Lee 148 grain wad cutter mold?

I bought both a Lee 2 cavity 158 grain SWC mold (which I have loaded quite a few of this style lead bullet in the past), and a Lee 2 cavity 148 grain wad cutter mold.

I have been thinking that it may have been a dumb idea to load the wad cutters since I have never done so in the past and it is only 8 grains lighter.

Do these bullets work fine in regular .38 special brass? I have read that factory loaded wad cutters have double crimped brass and seem a bit thinner in the mouth portion of the brass.

I may be leaning on returning the 148 grain and buy some sort of 9mm mold instead. Any advice?
