I think the 9mm Browning Long is actually longer than 9x19 Para.

No, you can not shoot 9mm Browning Long out of a .380ACP.

OAL of the 9mm Browning Long is around 27.9mm.
OAL of the .380ACP is around 24.9mm.
OAL of the 9x19mm is around 29.7mm.

auto's are not as interchangeable as revolvers. So no. Remember that they headspace on the case mouth, not the rim.

Nope, 9mm Browning long will not chamber in a 9mm court or .380 auto.

Small difference in case length and power.

9mm browning long on left .380 on rt.
