My friend just got a Bersa Thunder from his dad. He was wondering about ammo. He got some rounds with the gun. They say 9mm on them. Does he have the wrong ammo? Why would the ammo say 9mm if it is for the .380? Thanks for any help.;

They might be correct. .380 ACP is also known as 9mm Kurtz and 9x17mm. The usual ammunition we just call 9mm is 9x19mm, a bit longer than .380. Make sure you have the right thing.

Bersa calls both of their lines "Thunder". If the gun looks like a Walther PPK, it's probably a .380acp. If it looks like a Walther P-88 (full size), it's probably 9mm Parabellum. The full size models also come in .40. They also make "compact" versions of the "full" size in 9mm and .45 acp.
