So, I liked my Millennium G2 so much I bought 2 more at a much better price for my son and daughter. I still haven't bought a mold, yet but finally slugged all three with soft lead. Mine actually slugged .3564" not the .3572" I got with a harder alloy. So I have 2 guns that mic .3564" and one at .3557". I want to reload in bulk and don't want to size 2 sizes. I'm thinking .358" and am hoping some of you can chime in as to whether it will prove effective with both barrel sizes.

At .0007 in. difference, I certainly wouldn't worry about the difference.  Don't know what alloy you plan to use, but doubt very much if you would see any difference if you went even as hard as lino.  Have fun, ALL THREE OF YOU !!

I knew you would love that model. Really a bargain and great little gun. I would go with .356 and as long as you get combat accuracy, which I can't see any reason why you won't, you should be good to go. I rarely go with any other 9mm diameter bullet unless there is an issue with leading.

I'm thinking at .356" I will be inviting leading, only because that is smaller than groove diameter. With my rifle loads I always go a minimum of .002" over as long as they will chamber. I know sizing them too big can cause issues as well. I already bought a couple NOE expanders so the brass doesn't size them down. I could go with .357" if I knew for sure it still would prevent leading. Unfortunately, the only sizing die I have in this range is .360" for my .35 Remington so I don't have the luxury of experimenting with what I have on hand.. At $30 a shot I'm hoping to buy only one die and that one will work with all three guns.

I still think you should stick with the .356 diameter. Over 40 years of shooting auto pistols has taught me they are a far different animal from revolvers & rifles. The bullet will obturate to fill the shallow rifling found on most autos. Also most bullets sized .358 or over will bulge the case and prevent or make chambering difficult. I would bet money that you will not experience much leading if any with .356" bullets.
