What is the difference between .380 ACP and .380 Auto? They look exactly the same but cost different.

.380 ACP, .380 Auto, 9mm Browning, 9mm Corto, 9mm Kurz, 9mm Short, 9×17mm and 9mm Browning Court are all the exact same cartridge.

Note, a "9mm browning" is different from a "9mm luger" (standard 9mm,)

Be careful some 380 guns may be able to fire a 9mm round and vice versa but that's not always the case. They are different rounds and for a reason.

Whoops. The bullet is the same. The cartridges are different lengths and charge/pressures differ greatly. A .380 is a 9mm short (and used to be called that). Not a good idea to shoot a 9mm in a .380 due to pressure ratings.
