In Firearms Chambered For 9mm Luger(Parabellum)

Do Not Use These Cartridges
9mm NATO (Military)
40 Smith & Wesson
9x18 Makarov
9mm Winchester Magnum
9x18 Makarov

Anyone ever heard of a 9mm Win. Magnum?
Also, make sure you don't shoot 9mm Nato (surplus) ammo in any firearms chambered for 9mm Luger! <sarcasm>

Actually I was under the impression that 9mm NATO WAS the Parabellum round.

I've heard about it. It was suppose to be a campanion to the 45 Win Mag which is actually a lengthen 45ACP. I read that a Winchester made a run of cases, but never loaded any commercial ammo. AMT of Irwindale, Calif built one run of their gun, I forget the gun model though. It has paper ballistics that is supposed to be similiar to that of the M1 30 Carbine, which is probably why it failed.

I think 9mm Winchester Magnum is also known as 9x23 Winchester. Winchester still has a few loadings for it. It propels a 124 grain bullet at 1460 fps.

It used a 9x29.5 mm case designed by Winchester for use in Wildey gas pistols. In other words, a flop.

I believe it was orginally developed for the Wildey, but I have never seen or heard reference that any of those guns were ever produced in 9mm Win Mag. LAR chambered it in the Grizzly, but if you put a call into LAR, they will deny it. However, the late Bob Milek, wrote an article for Guns and Ammmo magazine on the Grizzly chambered in 9mm Win Mag back in 1984. Then AMT cracked out a few for they AutoMag III.

OT: Just a little side note, I called LAR of Ohgen UTah, regarding their Grizzly a few years back and they said don't make'em anymore. I believe they lost a huge lawsuit where a killer used a 44 Rem Mag Grizzly to murder a family of 3, I think it was a boyfriend/girlfriend thing. Today LAR only builds their 50cal bolt action rifle.
