    .380 - Buffalo Bore and Double Tap?

    Any thoughts on Buffalo Bore .380 +P 100 gr. Flat Nose and Double Tap 90 gr. JHP? Might be used in a PPK/S and one of the smaller polymer pocket .380's.
    Thanks.

    I have my wife's Sig 232 stoked with Buffalo Bore 95gr FMJ. I was very impressed with his write up on the .380.
    I have been using Double Tap in my .40 S&W pistols and am very pleased with DT's ballistics. However, I felt the BB was a better choice for the .380. OMO.

    I carry the BB 100 +P in my Mustang. My experiments with soaked paper tests show it to have considerably more penetration than a standard load .38 special, and almost as much as a .38 +P.

    Been using DoubleTap 90g Gold Dots in my P3AT. It is a stout enough load that I added the finger extensions to my magazines. It is plenty accurate in my gun, and absolutely reliable. My informal testing indicates that this is a very serious load, with violent expansion and good, deep penetration. Weight retention of the Gold Dots is nearly 100%.

    While I use mostly WWB FMJs at the range, the DoubleTap ammo is inexpensive enough that I can afford to practice regularly with my carry ammo.
