    I have great luck with these.. but my order came in for various calibers and I got 38-40 180 gr .401 bullets....I needed 40 cal/10mm.. will they still work for .40 s&w?? Or should I return..

    .401 is 40cal all you would need to do is look in your reloading book.

    38-40 bullets should have a roll-crimp groove,not needed on a pistol round,as they take a taper crimp.May or may not work depending on how the bullet sits in the case.Also,most 38-40 bullets are flat point,and may not feed in a semi auto all that well. I'd call LC and ask .

    and then again I may not know what the heck I"m talking about,it's late. LOL

    I think they will work, but there might be some subtle differences in ogive which may affect feeding. If OTB is saying it works, try it. OTB and LC both turn out really good quality bullets, part of the reason I got out of the casting biz, wasn't worth competing.
