    Take a look at Youtube, there are some videos of some not so scientific tests of that round.

    Not a fan of Magtech.
    My .32 S&W-L had a number of problems with their primers.

    I hope you like shooting .380 FMJ's then. The Magtechs are very unreliable and in a .380 caliber which has enough problems with reliable expansion, you are best to go with a more proven performer.

    Speaking about this topic personally what will you carry if you carry a .380 HP or Ball ammo because more people say it's better to rely on penetration than expansion when it comes to .380 , my question is even if the HP doesn't expand then you still have the fmj that will still penetrate so what do you have to lose?

    A number of my fellow employees carry .380 Kel Tecs as BUGS. As do some local LEOs, and all of them carry Gold Saber 102gr.
