One other comment regarding the concept of a shortened .38 Special case, it would be basically unreloadable with your .38 Special dies, as you wouldn't be able to get the case far enough up into your seating die to apply a crimp.
Correct....but....

I had tossed around the idea of buying a Davies derringer in .38 spl and trimming back the cases to - - pretty much what the OP is saying here.
No real reason why, just--because.

I would have used my old Lee "pound em in pound em out" reloading set to crimp the case mouth.
