Re: Is it possible...loading 380s using 9mm dies.
Post #7.. CJ posted above. Shows the dimensions of the 2 cartridges in question.. 9mm luger dies are ground to produce sized brass that will be shot in a 9mm luger. .380 ACP brass is not only shorter, it is thinner. it will not size in a 9mm die. your fired .380 cases will still be fired .380 cases from 9mm dies. you will be wasting your time.
Im certain that is the definitive proof that it WONT work that you say has not been provided.. Need more difinitive proof.. Ive tried it. I reload both and just for S**** and giggles i ran some .380into a 9mm die. they wont size. they are already too small.
Im 110% sure you will figure all of this out on your own shortly so im wasting my fingers posting this..
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
