While I'm new to firearms and maybe a little naïve at times I don't think dementia has set in yet. Is it possible that 357 ammo can be shot in a 38spl? I saw a couple videos on Youtube where I swear that the person shot 357 ammo in his .38.

Thank you. I'll have to revisit those videos again. I guess it wouldn't hurt to get my eyes and ears checked either.

Nope, 38sp can be shot in a 357, but not the other way around. If you were able to get a 357 in a 38 it would protrude out the end of the cylinder

You can chamber a .357 round in each of the revolver's chambers but you will not be able to close the cylinder. A .357 magnum round is as much longer than a .38 special as a .44 magnum is longer than a .44 special.

But as above posters point out, the other way around is fine.
