FN 380 2z Question


Is a FN 380 2z cartridge the same as a 38 Smith & Wesson ?
Thanks Bob


No, it is not. It is the same case type as the .38 Smith
and Wesson cartridge. The bullet is the same, though,
as that loaded in British .380 Mark 2Z cartridges. I had
a small lot of these cartridges from FN once, and they came
out of the Malay Peninsula, probably from the Singapore

I suspect your mention of “.32” S&W was just a typo. :-)

John Thanks for the reply.
I have edited my first post to correct my typo.
