The Medusa chambers, fires, and extracts 25 different cartridges (actually 117, if you count every one ever made, but only 25 were claimed) in the .380/.38/9mm/.357 ammunition range (just about any handgun round with a bullet diameter between .0355 and .0357 inches)
    heres the list of the original 25:
    .380 ACP,
    .380 Revolver,
    9x18mm Ultra,
    9x18mm Makarov,
    9mm Browning Patronen (long),
    9mm Export,
    9mm Glisenti,
    9mm Kurz,
    9mm Largo,
    9mm Long,
    9mm Luger,
    9mm Mauser,
    9mmx19 Parabellum,
    9mm Rimmed,
    9mm Steyr,
    9mm Win Mag,
    .38 ACP,
    .38 Auto,
    .38 Colt Super,

    .38 Mid-Range,
    .38 Short Colt,

    Dave Call, owner of; A Call to Arms. He should have what you want and in small quantities.

    AMMO-ONE, A little bit of everything!

    Many of your listed are different names for the same round.

    ie: 9mm Luger, 9mmx19 Parabellum

    or; .380 ACP, .380 Auto, 9mm Browning, 9mm Corto, 9mm Kurz, 9mm Short, and 9x17mm

    Wow!! looks like im gonna have to start reloading.... some of those are over $2 bucks a round! thanks for the site, theres a couple of rounds that look interesting... i would like to try the 9x18 ultra, 9x21 IMI, and the 9x23 Win Mag.
    Why so many different names for the same calibers?
    perhaps with the help of the fourm we could make a revised list of calibers for the Medusa, get rid of the repetitve calibers and find ones not listed?

    How about .38 TJ (Todd Jarrett) and .38 Super Comp? I have to check, but I may have a couple of .356 TSW's laying around

    Both the .38's are variations of the .38 super only in rimless versions. The TJ has a very different extractor groove. I will check to see what I have laying around.
