    I need a hundred or so MAK brass (BOXER Primed only) for which I will trade, .38, 9mmLuger, .45ACP or
    boolets, whatever we can agree on. I even have a few boxes of 50 .22's

    9mm mak brass can be made from 9mm brass with just a little effort.Trim it to mak length...load some cheap cast boolits and fireform the brass.It will expand to fit your chamber...then it can be sized to mak specs and loaded.I have made several thousand.But I do like to have a few hundred with the correct headstamp for various sd loads...Robin

    I figured that would work. What part of the case expands? they seem to be the same dimension.

    The base of both is the same. The only difference is the 9mm Mak brass is 1mm shorter, and the bullet is slightly fatter (.363 vs. .355). after the first firing the body of the brass will be expanded a little.

    What I do is size and deprime regular 9mm brass, expand them to bell the case mouth a bit, trim with a Lee case trimmer in a drill, chamfer, then just run them through the expander die again and load them up. The case capacity might be a little different than regular 9mm Mak brass so work up your load carefully.

    The dementsions for 9mm Mac and 9mm Luger are given on this website: http://stevespages.com/page8d.htm
    just scan down the page to the metric section and you will find them both.

    Good Shooting
