All I can say about shooting .380 in a 9x18 Super is that it will cycle reliably, as I and several other people on the WF can attest. Yes, the casings bulge and a split might happen. The cases probably headspace on the extractor, so that is a long term problem. It is perhaps an internet rumor, but I recall reading of an Aussie who shot “thousands” of rounds of .380 in his 9x18 Super without problems. Obviously, I don’t endorse it - buy one of each and be very happy! You can still find 9x18 Supers for around $500 if you are ok with a well used police surplus pistol. Ammo is generally available, and Fiocchi makes an annual production run (in summer?). Price is comparable to other less popular calibers (e.g., 30 Luger). My $0.02

Sarge, you've been a huge help with info about loading for the Super. The only issue will be keeping the trimmed brass separate from the .380 and 9mm stuff already rattling around the shop. :)
Now to find a gun...
