Post by orchidhunter » February 29th, 2008, 2:42 pm

Having tried this subject on the Makarov forum, being told it is unsafe, and having his post locked, he comes here.

Short way to say it is .380acp(9mmKurz) aren't the same rounds and not NOT interchangeable.

2 problem's with that is

1. bullet dia. on a 380 is.355 dia. on a 9 x 18 is .363
2. case length because on auto loaders such as 380 , 9x18, 9mm ,and 45 auto cases head space on the lip or the mouth of the case not on the rim,

there are a few exceptions to this rule (98% of the exceptions apply to revolvers only) but generally NEVER EVER SHOOT ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE SPECIFIC CALIBER IN WHICH YOUR GUN WAS MADE TO FIRE!!

I'm sure that this Bozo wants some kind of vitrolic post from me. I really can't provide it. Sorry, as hard as I can try I really don't care about you. This subject has been over-discussed, as this bozo well knows, and trying to fire up some controversy against me is worthless.

Come back with a new handle and try again.

Oh - it's kind of tougher trying to post to a moderated forum isn't it?
