For shooting cast lead from a revolver the most important fit is bullet to cylinder throat. Your bullet should be a snug fit in the throat. If you can puh one through with your thumb it's okay. If it drops through your bullet is too small.

If the throat diameter is less than the bore diameter you will probably not be happy shooting cast bullets.
