Re: I have a weard question
Although, there is a good possibility it would work. Very possibly the extractor hook would hold the case back against the face of the bolt, and would hold it sturdy enough that the firing pin would pop the primer.
You see posts on boards where people find 9mm cases with the mouths blown out, and you can tell they were obviously fired in a 40.
So it very well could work. Problem is, if you depended on it working, like routinely carrying 38s in your 357, the first time you needed it to work (try to mug me huh? Take that), that would be the time it would pick to slip off the hook and jam your gun.
Best to stick to the caliber the gun was designed for.
