I don't know for sure, never having slugged a Ruger speed six 9MM bbl., but I would hazard a guess that Ruger uses the same bbl in 9MM speed six bbls as they do for .357s. Also, it is not at all unusual that semi auto bbls in 9MM will prove to be .356 if one takes the time to slug them. Keep in mind though that I am not talking about match grade 9MM bbls here, just ordinage run of the mill 9MM bbls.

Also, Hornady, for one, makes 9MM bullets in .356 diameter if you are handloading the 9MM.

I was able to find a cylinder that fit perfectly my security six 6 inch and my police service six. Lock up timing perfect.

I sent it off to TK customs and had the do a 9mm conversion.

Took it to the range yesterday to set sights a 25 yards.

Both the 9mm 115 grain and 38 plus p 125 grain hit exact same POI. the sights dialed in for 9mm.

I was able to drill several cylinders of each in 1 to 2 inch hole rested.

The 9mm has a bit more snap then the 38+p.

Next is to test 124 grain/158 grain 38 and 357's.
Oh yeah some 125 grain 357.

Very happy with the results.

A fixed-sight 6" 9mm is what you're after?

FWIW, my OM convertible shoots 125gr 357M to the same point of impact at 25' as the 9mm cylinder w/most 147gr bullets.
Shooting 38SPL is anyone's guess where the bullets will group on a given day.
I wish Ruger had made at least one dedicated 38SPL revolver with target accuracy.
But that is apparently what the K-frames are for!

The 147 gr. Bullet might be the key to the accuracy question. I'm still looking for a barrel for the Speed Six...4, 5 or 6" would be fine.
Sooner or later, one will show up.
