    All the same thing.

    Ohh cool. Awesome. It's just my pistol says luger and my carbine says x19 but I bought some x19 and compared and I could not really tell a difference

    9mm Luger / Parabellum = 9x19
    9mm Makarov = 9x18
    380 Auto = 9x17

    All three have the same diameter (9mm) but different lengths

    Besides the rounds listed, there are at least 14 other "9 Millimeter" handgun cartridges. Most of them will not interchange, and they are not necessarily really 9mm. But yes, yours are the same.

    Example- the 9mm Makarov is really 9.8mm.
