Better round alignment into the carrier, for the smaller diameter .38's.

Lumpy is correct.

The Uberti rifles are made with the same sized magazine tube for both the .45 Colt and the .38 Special/.357 Magnum.  The result is that when the .45 Colts are loaded into the magazine they line up pretty well.

 

However in your .38 Special rifle they look like this:

Wedging and hang-ups can occur and that results in the hitch in the action.

 

With the Cowboy Gunworks Smooth Cycle Sleeve Kit your .38 Special cartridges line up like this:

This tube is of a smaller diameter that allow's the 38's to align straighter and to feed easier and smoother.

I measured a 357 brass around the head stamp, .0430. same place on 38 special was .0432. So the answer is yes the tube will work with 357 rounds.
