That looks like pretty good expansion. With .380s, I hear a lot about FMJ for self defense because a lot of hollow points don't expand well.
.357 mag, When you care enough to send the very best!
.380 is a nice little round, how bout a pic next to a quarter for size reference?
Nice. You have been busy with ballistics testing. Kind of cool to see these. Great way to pass time on hot day as water explodes around you....
It's not a problem til they make it one!
Thanks for sharing the pics. Makes me feel good about the 13 rounds I'm carrying right now.
Beretta 85, CZ83...both hold 13rds, iirc...
There are no dangerous weapons; there are only dangerous men.--RAH

There is a reason they try and make small bullets act like big bullets--Glockmann10mm
as i've noticed about others--that they do not always do as i think they will nor often as they say they will.
this not only makes life interesting, it makes it dangerous too.

What weapon did you use in regards to barrel length ?
I carry that round in my Diamondback .380 and the barrel length is 2".

Looks good to me! I hardly ever carry my ppk-s as my primary, but that is the round that is loaded and carried when I do.
