- Q & A
.380 ACP ammunition has been on the market since 1908, and although it’s seen fairly extensive use all along its reached new heights of popularity in recent years. It’s known for fine accuracy, manageable recoil, and affordable cost, and then there’s how easy to conceal it tends to be. Ease of concealment is certainly an issue, especially for shooters with smaller frames, and the average .380 ACP can be tucked in an ankle holster or belly band with no problem. It is, however, important for owners of .380 ACP-chambered firearms to understand its limitations: this round is meant or close range and works best at distances of 7 feet and less.
These .380 ACP rounds are made by Remington and weigh 88 grain, making them lightweight but within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being lighter weight means they’re able to move at faster speeds and also means the manageable recoil you like about your gun is preserved. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds, meaning they expand in a controlled manner on impact, mushrooming more slowly than standard HPs and penetrating more deeply, creating a larger, more catastrophic wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 990 feet per second and muzzle energy of 191 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed specifically for self-defense.
When you order this box of ammunition from Remington you get 500 defense rounds, which is more than enough to keep your gun loaded and ready for self-defense and also get in substantial training time. Since defense rounds produce greater power overall than target rounds it can be harder to make accurate follow-up shots with them, so it’s wise to train using your chosen defense rounds. Someday your life could depend on it. And because Remington produces these rounds in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, they can be reloaded, giving you even more range time. Remington manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lonoke, Arkansas. Place your order today and hit the range with your favorite handgun.
