    Hi guys I was wondering would 9mm parabelum (9x19mm) work in a 9mm browning long (9x20mm)? I'm looking at 2 pistols a Husqvarna 1907 and a FN Browning 1903 and they both take the 9mm Browning long yet I can't seem to find any suppliers for said ammo in Canada. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    NO!, the 9X19 parabellum headspaces on the casemouth, meaning the chamber in the 9X20 is going to be 1mm too long. chances are it wouldnt fire but if it did you might be sleeping with the worms as a result. hardly worth the risk. look up old western scrounger, they might be able to help you attain some. be safe

    Thanks JLA. I hace found quite a few places down there to get it. Maybe I'll get my father in law to grab some for me as it is totaly legal to import up to 5000 rounds at a time for personal use
