    What is your experience with HPR ammo-Good/Bad?

    Just picked up a Sig P238 so in pursuit of .380 ammo I was not finding much at the big box stores. As good luck would have it a local mom/pop hardware store had quite a bit and they were raving about HPR brand. I had never hear of it before but it is made in AZ and advertises a Hyper-Clean technology. Does anyone have any experience with it? I normally stick with a run of the mill Winchester or Remington. I haven't had a chance to fire it yet but after their sales pitch, and finding nothing elsewhere, I couldn't pass it by.

    Yeah it is nice ammo .. Fired a bit ..Rounds are some of the shiniest brass I have seen.. They used hornday bullets for some loads.. I like the stuff so far seem very low smoke and pretty clean to me ...

    also there was just a thread on there HP round HPR XTP / 'Hyper Clean'

    I have not fired it a lot but I like it so far ...

    I just recently fired 2 boxes of .45acp HPR and I agree with the above post. The first thing that struck me about the ammo was how very shiny it was.

    That was my first impression as well-very clean and polished rounds. If it fires and burns as clean as it looks I should be good to go. Just wanted to see if anyone had trouble with it. I may have to pick up that last box as the big box stores have nothing.
