I load many different calibers but have never loaded the 9x18. The surplus ammo was always cheap enough I did not bother. I was recently asked if I could load the 9x18. Having never loaded them, here lies the question. Will a 9x19 die set work ? Of course using brass and not the steel cases. My thinking is yes as they are both 9mm and the case on the the 9x18 is shorter so it should not be no problem in resizing the case. I'm not one to reinvent the wheel so throwing this out there before even trying. I really don't shoot the Makarov enough to justify buying another set of dies.
