9 mm Browning Court is another name for .380 Auto correct?

Box is marked as such, but wanted to make sure it is regular .380.

If so, cool. I figured that with ammo, especially .380 going for $30-40 a box, I couldn't pass a box of S&B for $10.

.380 is often called 9X17, 9mm Kurtz, and .380 ACP. This is my first encounter with the term 9mm Browning Court. Are you sure it's not Kurtz?
Best,

Nope, says 9mm Browning Court/.380 Auto on the box.

Sure looks like .380, but want to be 100% sure.

Short = Corto = Kurtz = Court = Auto



However, it is NOT the same as ACP.

Here is the link to the S & B web page for the ammo. If I had the ammo I would compare the specs on that page to some .380 specs.

It seems to be in line with any other .380 Auto specs I could find.

.380 Auto is not the same as .380 ACP. Yes, No?

Looking at Ruger LCP it is listed as .380 ACP while a Kel-Tec P3AT is listed as .380 Auto. I was going to pick up a P3AT, so this should work out good.

Yes, it is the exact same thing as .380 ACP.

I shot a bunch of it in my Kel-Tec P3AT to get the empty brass when I got it four years ago. Good stuff!

It was $6.99 at Cabala's then!

Court = short in French I believe.

Don't confuse it with 38 ACP, which is the predecessor of 38 Super.

And 380 Auto is also called 9mm Browning, 9mm Kratak, 9mm Scurt, and 9x17mm.

"Yes, it is the exact same thing as .380 ACP.

So why does Ruger call for ACP if it they are the same cartridge?

I have never given this fact a thought before I came across this box of ammo.

Ruger calls it the .380 ACP because that it what it is called in the U.S.A.

The real question is, why Kel-Tec calls it the .380 Auto?

or why did JMB call the .32acp, 380acp and .45acp -'acp'? Colt made the pistols that were first made for the chambering. .25acp too actually.
about 1903 - 1920.

In German, the pistol calibre is 9mm Kurz.
