If you cast your own Mak bullets, then you can have a fun & challenging time using .380acp 9x17 brass, or Mak 9X18 brass, or trimmed 9mil 9x19 brass when you reload. The Mak Pistol is solid. Experiment and have some fun. Send us pics and keep use posted on your progress.
After some 30 years, I finally found a boat load of inexpensive .380acp brass. Now I load-up 9mil bullets with 9mil powder and 9mil primers and go out and experience .380acp fun at 9mil prices.
