Purchased a Walther PP Super in 9mm x 18,but have now been told that it uses its own 9 x 18 which has a smaller bullet diameter than any other 9 x 18 round. Could anyone advise me as to what make of cartridge can be used in this pistol. many thanks for any assistance.

Gullwing, I have posted your question on a Walther forum. I'll get back to you when I get a response. It shouldn't take long as it is a very active forum.

UPDATE: Response back already...........9 X 18 Makarov

OH, welcome to pistolworld!!

Most 380's wont chamber 9x18 makarov. The 9x18 has a very slight ballistic edge. 9x19mm case can be cut down and reloaded as 9x18mm ammunition, the dimensions are different for 9x17mm, so you can't shorted either case to create 9x17mm. It isn't reliable, and is not recommended. ASTRA 500 will chamber any cartridge close to the 9mm.
