    Here are three of the popular 9's. Yes, you need to match the bullet to the gun.

    9x19mm = 9mm Luger.
    9x18mm = 9mm Makarov.
    9x17mm = 9mm Kurz (short), or .380 ACP.

    You'll also sometimes see 9x19 listed as 9mm Parabellum.
    Then there's 9x21 and 9x23, though not as widely used as the other three ... confusing, ain't it!
