    and lesst than 30 minutes to chuck-up the barrel, indicate it in, install the reamer in the tailstock, deepen the chamber by .100", and polish same. Pocket autopistols. chambers dont benefit from having a floating holder for the reamer. Have a spare 9x19 barrel for practice.

    Starline still makes 356 TSW brass, Graf and Sons sells it by the 100-rd bag. The 356 only makes sense in a pocket auto, tho. You can have 10mm, 9x25 Dillon, 38 Casull, 460 Rowland in a belt gun. So why settle for 600 ft lbs in a 356, when you could have 900 ft lbs per shot with a belt gun?

    The 356 can get a 55 gr bullet to 2200 fps in a 6" long pocket gun, have 600 ft lbs of power, and be easier to control than a steel framed .38 snub with plus P 158 grlhp's. The shooting timer easily proves that to be true. Why settle for 250 ft lbs per shot, and 5 rds only, in a big lump in your pocket, when you can have 7 rds of 600 ft lbs per shot?
