    benn picking up some here and there. All SB stamped. so close to 9mm para its hard to tell.

    What do you think would happen if it got loaded inadvertantly as 9nmm para?

    on a side note, when i first read your post i said to myself "what the heck is 9mm paratrooper?" and then i realized you meant parabellum.
  4. Check the headstamps. It's a good habit to sort your brass by the headstamp anyway.

    As the 9mm headspaces on the case mouth you would probably end up with a round hanging off the extractor, like shooting a 40 in a 10mm.
  6. If you get enough of them to ship let me know, I could use the extras. Bad things will happen if you load it as a 9x19, the length is different, the case wall is different, and the diameter is different. You can trim down 9x19 to use it in 9x18 though.
  7. 9x18 brass will fire when loaded as a 9x19, I have done it. It is probably not good practice to do regularly though.

    I also have trimmed down 9x19 brass to use as 9x18. You have to form fire it to get it to seal good, but it works well. Now that is confusing when sorting brass.
