    Kimber 38 Super Question

    Hello everyone, been a while (so long in fact, the site name has changed) since I've been here. I have no excuse, I'll take my lashings humbly!! But when I had an interesting gun question, you see where I turned.
    This might be an ammo question, move the thread if needed, but I recently bought a Kimber Stainless II in 38 Super. I was talking to a local gunsmith/dealer yesterday and mentioned my new pistol and he informed me that newer 38Supers will also chamber and shoot
    9x23 ammo. I understand that the case is primarily the same, but the 38Super is a semi-rimless, and the 9x23 is rimless, if I'm correct.
    So the question is, can you shoot a 9x23 in a 38Super?
    I don't interchange ammo (.38 in a 357, and 45 in a 454 excluded) but am wondering if any one else has info on this. The gentleman who told me this is a respected former military armorer, and currently owns and operates a gun dealership/smith shop known for excellent work and value. Just curious

    On a side note, I love my new Kimber, and it is a joy to shoot in 38Super. This is my first Super, and I can see why many love this round, even if it isn't mainstream.
    Thanks for any info, and even outside the question, I'd love to hear from anyone else with a Super and what they think about'em.

    I have a Kimber Pro Carry in .38 Super & also shoot 9x23 in it. Works fine.

    Thank you goawayfarm!!!!!!!
    While I had doubts, your answer was what I was hoping for, to concur with the gunsmiths advise.
