    What is the best round in?

    .380 - There isn't one. The full metal jacketed round is the best of a bad choice, but only because it might penetrate.
    For what it is worth at one time the .36 caliber colt navy revolvers were used for combat by the military and even wild bill hitchcock and its ballistics with a round .36 caliber lead ball are no more powerful than the .355 cylindrical slug used in a .380. A major problem of the small guns are not just their ballistics, it is also the difficulty of hiting vital areas due to the poor ergonomics that are involved. Weaker load and poor accuracy make a poor defensive conbination.

    Corbon DXP in everything I have. It is high, but like when I bought my 1st motorcycle they had helmets running from 19 to 300 dollars. I asked the salseman what helmet do I need to get? He replied...I don't know... what's your head worth to you? So along that same line.....what is your life worth to you?

    DPX will ruin your barrel if fired too much. (Specific for the P3AT) I'd only shoot a minimum of the DPX at the range.

    I practice with my reloads. DXP is my carry round. So 1 box will last a long time.

    Staggering FMJ and HP -- concern about different recoil and muzz flash during SD situations.

    During conventional target fire maybe but if you are squeezing your llttle buddy like you will/should during a SD shoot and SD practice you have no problems.

    I searched what I could find on the internet for my P3at. Found a table of balistic gellatin tests for 9mm and .380. It measured wound volume and penetration among other factors. For .380, Hornady 90 gr HP/XTP had the highest wound volume 14.34 aq/in and a penetration of 11.25 inches. The 9mm ranged between wound volume 18 to 21 sq in and penetration between 11 and 23 inches.

    Mine shoots a couple brands with no problem, but WWB FMJ is the cheapest and easiest for me to find. Bonus, it is allowed at the gun range I occasionally visit when it's too cold and sloppy to shoot outside.
