Is the reloading process the same for a lead bullet and a jacketed bullet.

Got any books? There's lots of them. That's probably for a 35 Remington anyway.

Could be he's loading a 38/200 for his Enfield or Webley.

Or maybe some 38 Special super police - they used 200 grain bullets.

Could be.
I have an original, full box of Remington, 200 gr. cartridges I inherited.

If for a 38/200 isn’t he about .004 shy on diameter?

I'VE got books (if you mean reloading manuals)... LOTS of them. Only TWO of them have data for 200 gr. bullets in .357 Mag. ONE of them is similar to the image posted by Mr_Flintstone. The other is a Lee Manual, which I trust less.
ONE THING about that Herco load in the Lyman manual: I recommend going no higher than 6.8 gr./ Herco/200 gr., or at least be extra careful. I got very flat primers and stuck cases with that load. A load with 0.1 gr. less gave me SLIGHTLY flattened primers and NO sticky cases

I'll have to check mine from the 30's, 50's and 60's and see what they have in them. I guess nothing got printed in the 40's, or very much, even after the war.
