- Q & A
The .380 ACP is loved for how easy it is to conceal. It’s so lightweight and compact it fits discreetly in pocket and ankle holsters, and many firearms owners prefer such carry for personal protection. But there’s more to the .380 ACP than the standard facts. For example, there are actually some locked-breech firearms chambered in .380 ACP; although they usually don’t need the locking mechanism thanks to a small bolt thrust, sometimes they’re still built with one. And there are small submachine guns chambered in this cartridge, like the MAC-11 and the vz 83. One also can’t forget this is the caliber of weapon that was successfully created using a 3-D printer.
So, yes, the .380 ACP has a few surprises up its lightweight sleeve. And in order to properly load yours for self-defense, you need a good hollow point round. These are JHP rounds, so they have greater strength as a result of the harder metal jacket and also the expansion and deceleration you expect from an HP. Hollow points are desired for self-defense because they provide massive energy transfer and devastating wound tracks, but they’re also good because they begin to slow down as soon as they hit. That means they won’t over-penetrate like target rounds do.
90 grain is a common weight for this caliber, although it is, of course, lightweight. In order to keep the low recoil you want from your .380 ACP, you want a lightweight round. They also move faster; these have a muzzle velocity of 975 feet per second. Their muzzle energy is 190 foot-pounds, and they’re well-suited for close-quarters self-defense scenarios. There are 50 rounds in this box, so you can load your gun for concealed carry and also fire a few rounds off to see how they feel. Need even more?
