    That 100 gr. Buffalo Bore round could just very well be the saving grace for the .380 ACP. Wild Bill Hickock killed five men in two years using an 1851 Navy Colt whose ballistics were considerably shabbyer that that. I'd really like to see some penetration tests for that load. I'd also like to see that bullet become a LSWCHP like the traditional .38 spe. FBI load.

    DPX avg'd 1020 fps out of P3AT. May be a little faster out of LCP. My velocities for Fed HydraShock and WWB fmj 30-40fps lower than Graybeard's results out of LCP.

    What did the recoil feel like on each one of those brands?
