Can someone tell me the difference between 9x19 and 9mm luger? I searched but came up empty. Thanks.

The 9x19 Parabellum, 9 mm Luger or 9mm NATO are all the same cartridge

Thanks. I wondered if 9x19 was smaller than 9 mm luger.

Nope, they're the very same round.  The diameter of the bullet is 9mm, and the length of the case is 19mm, hence 9x19.  It's just the European way of identifying ammunition.

Hope this helps.

Since the P-07 is listed as 9x19 I just wasn't sure if that was a smaller shell than 9mm luger. Got it now. Thanks.
