    I use 102gr Gold Saber, reliable function and the terminal performance is what I'm comfortable with. You should have no problems getting consistant performance from the PK, it's not a tiny snub barrel.

    I use Hornady Critical Defense in my S&W Body Guard .380, works great, no miss feeds.

    I agree with those recommending a 90-95 gr. FMJ. Probably the best bet.

    I'd love to see a 110gr +p .380 round. IMO, that would be a very good defensive round and I'd buy a ton of it.

    I`m using X-Treme plated 100gr FN in my Lady`s Bersa Thunder .380. Shoots great and is accurate.
