Can you use a 9mm Parabelum die set to load the 380 Auto?

If you look up both those calibers on Wikipedia, you'll see that the 9mm case is a little bigger in diameter. I would be concerned that it would not size fired 380 brass down far enough to feed reliably (or at all) into a 380 chamber. I'd take Ron up on his offer if I were you.
