    Picked up a Star Super in largo. Been combing the web for ideas and info and finds TONS of info but no definitive answer. Would be easier just to buy 38 Super or 9x23 ammo, pull the bullets and reload to largo specs? Sounds like guys are making this more difficult than it should be

    have you considered having the chamber reamed for 38 super? or 9x23? can the barrel be replaced with a 9mm, 38 super barrel?

    It will cycle Super or x23 just fine but they are to hot for it. Just left cabelas and the had some super ammo but no x23. I can load with 9mm Luger dies for the x23 ammo so I thought about doing that. The super is .357 while the 23 is .355 to the best of my knowledge.

    Yeah, figured if I started with 355 brass it might make things a little easier

    Well hell Rod, didn't know you had a YouTube channel. I could come by if that's easier.
    Even worse, I've watched your stainless media video and didn't realize it was you!

    I've got some surplus Largo ammo you can have. 30-40 rounds.
