    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 number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.

    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.
    Proverbs 27:12 says: “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”

    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.
