    I "dutch load" my wife's LCP like this, because penetration with the .380 is marginal (~10") with JHPs.

    Not sure the benefit of doing this with a .45 and modern JHPs, however.

    My thinking is:

    9mm and above - all JHPs
    .380 - mix JHPs and FMJ
    below .380 - all FMJ
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I see no need to vary the bullet type, grain, or make...OMOYMV
    The most important thing is that the type used works well in that particular firearm.

    When 380 CD ammo was not available I dutch loaded. Of late been able to find different 380 rounds and changed out the loads to only one proven round. In the past I have fired dutch loaded mag in my P3AT and it ate everything like it tasted good.
