.38 Super Specs:
PSI= 36,500
CUP= 33,000

.357 Magnum:
PSI= 35,000
CUP=45,000

.38 Special (non +p):
PSI=17,000
CUP=17,000

So you see a .357 Magnum would, if the .38 Super fit, should work especially since the revolvers have a flash gap and some pressure would be lost.

BUT in a .38 Spl., even a +p (22,000 CUP) it would be a very very BAD IDEA.
