Shooting a .380 round from a 9mm?

Recommended Posts

My daughter was watching one of those crime tv shows tonight, I'm not sure of the name of the show but it is based on the murder investigations solved by guy named Lt. Joe Kenda. In the show he stated that they found "several" .380 caliber shell casings at the crime scene that were fired from a Browning 9mm pistol that they recovered. He stated that a .380 can be used in 9mm pistols. I'm pretty sure that if you put a .380 in the chamber of a 9mm it would fire but I don't think it would cycle. Maybe I'm wrong but even if it would work I seriously doubt that it would work well enough to leave "several" shell casings at the crime scene. Am I wrong? Will a .380 round work in a 9mm?
