The SHOT Show – Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade – has been considered an annual can’t-miss event for shooters everywhere since 1979. And it was at their 2009 show they successful created a new tidal wave of interest in .380 ACP as a conceal carry option. Although .380 ACP has long been the choice of many law enforcement officers as their backup weapon and has always been one of the forerunners in lightweight self-defense use, that year a few new models created a stir. Among them were the Kahr P380, the SIG Sauer P238, and the Walther PK380. Gun reviewers and firearms aficionados alike took notice of the new generation of pocket-size protection, and .380 ACP experienced yet another surge.
Those who have remained loyal to .380 ACP understand its appeal. The guns have compact, lightweight frames, which make them far easier to conceal than many of their counterparts, and they have practically no recoil, making them easy to master. They work well in close quarters and many people are far more likely to carry these guns than a heavier-yet-supposedly-compact firearm. Face it, a gun is no good for personal protection if it’s sitting at home in the safe. Of course, like any gun, they require skill, which requires practice to attain. And for target practice or plinking, you want FMJ like these. They’re berdan-primed for reliable ignition and have aluminum cases to reduce your cost. CCI manufactures its ammunition in Lewiston, Idaho.
You might think these are either incredibly light at 95 grain, but for .380 ACP, it’s at the heavier end of the spectrum. This caliber is typically created between 85 and 95 grain, every size of which is fairly lightweight from a broad perspective. But when you’re working with an already-smaller caliber, every grain counts. 95 grain weight remains speedy with a muzzle velocity of 945 feet per second and produces the expected muzzle energy of 188 foot-pounds. When you’re working at close range and you’ve mastered shot placement, .380 ACP is a good self-defense round. There are 50 rounds in this box, giving you a chance to work on your own shot placement abilities, either to improve or hone them further. Whatever stage of the .380 ACP love you came in on, place your order today, and keep it going.

- is this brass or steel thanks Posted On: 7/29/2022 By: clifton hodges
- Thanks for reaching out Clifton! This ammo actually has aluminum cases. They're lighter and less expensive than brass cases, but they're also not suitable for handloading.
