Renowned cartridge designer John Browning created new cartridges more than once by using an existing cartridge as a sort of template. In the case of the .380 ACP, it is dimensionally accurate to say the round is a smaller version of the .45 ACP – 78% of the bigger cartridge’s size, to be precise. For example, the .380 has a .355” diameter bullet and the .45 ACP has a .451” diameter bullet while the base of the case for the .380 has a diameter of .374” and the .45 ACP’s is .480”. So does it matter beyond simple curiosity that the two cases seem to have a few things in common? Probably not, but one thing’s for sure, the .380 ACP is enjoying a popularity surge on par with the fame of the Navy SEALs.
These particular .380 ACP’s were made by Winchester, the company known for their part in the making of the lever-action Gun That Won the West, among other impressive products. Winchester was founded in 1866 by Oliver Winchester, and they’ve been making firearms and ammunition ever since. They’re known for their quality and dependability, and if there are two things you want from your ammunition, that’s it. The Olin Corporation now manufactures Winchester ammunition, and since they’ve been working within the legendary company almost since its inception, nothing’s really changed. All ammunition is still made in America, and each and every round must meet their strict expectations.
At 95 grain these are standard-weight rounds, so they’ll keep your recoil to a minimum. They’re FMJ’s ideal for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Winchester produces them in new-production brass cases with boxer primer, so after you burn through the box you can collect your spent brass, reload, and feed your gun again. They’re also non-corrosive, so they produce less friction in your gun’s barrel. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 955 feet per second and muzzle energy of 199 foot-pounds. There are a whopping 500 target rounds in this box, so order yours today to hit the range immediately for some quality time with your favorite pistol.
