    Hey all, while sorting some brass recently, I found some cases marked 9mm ACP, not the usual 9mm Luger. It looks and seems to measure close to Luger marked cases but I had not seen this before. Are they the same?

    If it matches the dimensions of a 9mm case, it's probably standard 9mm luger. However, it could also be 380 auto. This is referred to occasionally by it's metric designation 9mm kurtz (german for short), while I don't think this is the case it's something to be aware of.
