i just picked up a nice type26 revolver and it's in my opinion very safe to shoot. here is my problem has anyone made ammo for one of these? i heard one can take a 38 spc. case shorten it and trim the rim a little and run some weaker powder ( don't remember what it was ) and it works out fine.

Is that the 38 S&W round?
I got a 1940's revolver made by S & W for the british and it takes that round.
I bought some here.

Same size as a .38 but shorter and has the kick of a .22

I've bought all kinds of Japanese ammo from him and all of it works great! I think the 9mm revolver stuff is made from .39S&W cases, but regular .38S&W will NOT fit- the case rim has to be turned down first.
