    Are they essentially the same thing? can a 38 short colt cartridge be fired in a 380 rook firearm and vice versa?

    What is a "380 took" or a "380 rook"?

    Whoops, typo on the title. 380 rook. Guess it’s also called a 380 long?

    Ok that answers that. Thanks. I don’t know where I read that they were the same but they’re obviously not.

    Ed Harris said a .380 Rook would shoot swaged .358" bullets pretty well and HBWC quite well.
