      Glad they did that, a lot of places won't. Most places have a sign up "no exchanges or returns on ammo", buy the wrong ammo and you end up stuck with it .

While a 9x18 Makarov round is shorter than a 9x19 Luger, the 9x18 Makarov diameter is larger, so it won't chamber in a 9x19 Luger gun.

      Silver Bear does not make Largo ammo.
      I wasn't aware that they didn't make a largo round. I knew that 9x18 rounds is a little bigger around but also know the Sigma chamber is not a real tight one. In fact it's pretty loose. I don't know if it's enough to fit the Makerov round being I was never one that would try something like that but one of the reasons the weapon will feed almost anything is the chamber is far from a match chamber. At least that was my experience owning one. That's how I got to where I did. And I had seen it done before at a range some years back.

      I am actually surprised about this.... I would not have expected them to be as accommodating. If I were you, I would go back there time and time again.

      Great end to the story! Congrats on the new Sigma, let us know what you do for training, a good range is also a great place to look for instructors....

      I imagine Cabellas realized the purchaser did not know there were different kinds of 9mm and Cabellas sold them the wrong ammo. I would demand an exchange if this happened to me. it is one thing if someone asks for 9x18 and realized they need 9x19 and the store refuses to exchange the ammo. it is another thing if the buyer is relying on the salesman to sell them the correct ammo.

      glad to see it all worked out. let us know how you like shooting your handgun for the FIRST time.
