9 mm Browning Long vs 9x19mm Parabellum
Has anyone tried shooting 9 mm Browning Long ammo in a Glock?
Here is a wiki spec sheet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9mm
The rim might fit, but that .046" longer case would probably be a problem.
I doubt that it would go completely into battery. If you had a Glock in
9x21 the extractor would likely hold it tight enough to fire.
Where are you going to get any 9mm Browning Long ammo? I've never
Hi Bill thanks for the reply.
Product ID: AM964
9mm Browning Long (108 GR.) Details & Associated Product Family
Boxer primed, Non-Corrosive. 50 rds./box, 1000 rds./case. Price per box.
I've bought quite a bit of ammo from Century International Arms, in the past.
They have good prices and reasonable shipping costs. There ammo is good.
I finally bought a 9mm, and I haven't reloaded any ammo, yet. I thought a bulk buy on ammo would be a good idea, but I don't want to buy 1000 rounds if they won't shoot!
I've been buying Winchester ammo at Wal-Mart for about $17/100 after taxes.
That's a pretty good price! I'm tempted to buy a case, and chamber
a spare barrel for one of my G17's deeper for the Browning Long cartridge.
Not sure if that extra .012" of rim diameter would be a problem. Guess I
need to do a little measuring before I jump on the idea.
You might want to use this link to find a dealer near you:
Maybe they would buy a case and sell you a box.
I also did the math:
The head spacing could be an issue, as the case is .006 is shorter than the 9x19.
The OAL is .069 longer than the 9x19. edit: My reloading data shows 9x19 OAL ranging from 1.010" to 1.120".
I'm going to the local gun shop & see what they think.
Your Glock is chambered in 9x19mm. I'd suggest sticking with the ammo that the pistol was designed to fire, especially because it's a Glock. Glocks tend to become bombs when exposed to anything over their SAAMI speced chamber pressures.
I agree. I've spent the morning following links. I want to keep my Glock in one piece, not like those blown up ones.
other markets that forbid 9x19.
Browning Long is:
.046" longer case
.012" larger rim
.007" smaller case base
.004" smaller neck
.059" shorter OAL
compared to the 9x19. The first two----case length and rim diameter,
are what would possibly prevent the 9mm Browning Long firing in a 9x19
The 9x19 case length is .754"
The "Long" case length is .800"
The difference is only .006"
I agree with the rim difference.
This is the main reason why I'm not going to try this substitution:
Also, I've been buying Winchester ammo at Wal-Mart for about $17/100 after taxes. The price difference is only about $2/100. The Wal-Mart price went up about 3 weeks ago in Ohio. I plan on buying a few boxes, before the prices go up in Texas. (Unless they already have.)
PS The OAL is .069 longer than the 9x19. edit: My reloading data shows 9x19 OAL ranging from 1.010" to 1.120".
