    WWB 95 gr FMJ-FP. ~ 17 inches penetration, without the need for expensive "+P" nonsense beating up yourself or your pistol

    GoldenLoki.com

    There are NO .380 JHPs that I am aware of that will get the FBI's desired 15 inches of penetration. Only a few even meet the 12 inch minimum. Just use FMJ and be done with it. Don't try to make the .380 something it isn't. It is still plenty, even with FMJ.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I've tried Remington Golden Sabres, Speer Gold Dots, and Cor bon JHP's with 0 issues. I had some failure to eject problems with Federal ball ammo and the occasional WWB failure to close on some rounds.

    I use hornady critical defense. Some others I have used slam into the feed ramp and I noticed bullet set back.

    I have had good luck with Critical Defense, Win. PDX, and Rem. Home defense(black box Golden Sabers). Mine doesn't seem to like Gold Dots or WWB. :( Just remember that the LCP is not rated for +p so if you want to use the BB loads you should get the non +p rated stuff.

    I've been using Gold Dots, but I think I'm going to switch to Critical Defense.
