Found a good deal on some .355 95 gr FMJ bullets labeled as "380". I dont own a .380, but couldnt see a reason I couldn't load them in my 9mm. The bullet profile is a little different, but should they be safe and be acurate? NOt really worried about jaming...I think my Glock would eat flushseated wadcutter.

I've done it. They work just fine, as long as your gun will feed something that short.

I have loaded 115 grain 9mm bullets in a .380 case so I don't see any problem if you are using established values for powder and primer. Let me know if you need some data.

Yep, they work fine. Same diameter. Like zvcxbob says, find an OAL that works for your pistol. Lots of data out there for 95g bullets on the manufacturers sites. Or you can always use 100g data for the lighter bullet, and it will produce the same or lower pressure.
