I have read a few articles about extra heavy 9mm bullet loads. 158g lead to be exact. The articles (Guns & Ammo and one elsewhere) stated that they used .357 158g lead bullets resized to 9mm diameter. Does anyone know of a place selling them pre-sized? I would like to experiment with some but I do not have a sizer, nor do I want to invest in one. Thanks.

10mm, I've used many 158 gr rn in 9mm with good results. I suggest you slug your bore before sizing and size appropriately with a quality lube. sundog
