- Q & A
The .380 ACP was designed in 1908 by John Browning for use in the blowback pistols of the era that didn’t have locking mechanisms. The cartridge has a very low bolt thrust, making it possibly permanently fix the barrel to the frame; the recoil spring and mass of the slide are more than enough of a buffer against the minimal recoil the .380 ACP produces. Every once in awhile a gun chambered in .380 ACP is made with a locked breech, though, including the Remington Model 51. And just because it’s a smaller cartridge doesn’t mean it never goes in bigger guns, either, there are submachine guns out there in .380 such as the vz. 83 and the Ingram MAC-11.
At 95 grain this is the standard, lightweight size for the .380 ACP. Keeping the rounds light helps to maintain the incredibly minimal recoil of the gun while also increasing speed. These are FMJ rounds and don’t expand on contact, making them ideal for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round moves swiftly down-range with a muzzle velocity of 955 feet per second and hits your target with a muzzle energy of 190 foot-pounds. This ammunition is made in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent brass casings, reload them, and feed your gun again.
There are 500 target rounds in this box of ammunition, which is certainly enough to keep you stocked during a day of dedicated shooting or a few shorter outings. And, of course, consider buying a second box to increase the stash you have on-hand. Winchester manufactures all their ammunition in America, just as they always have. After more than 150 years of production and design experience they’ve got it down to a science, and the superior performance and high quality of their ammunition is testimony to their excellence. Don’t let your .380 ACP sit and gather dust; place your order for this 500-round box today and head for the range.
