That seems quite potent for a .380 round; might have to get my wife some of that for her carry.

Definitely performs better than most .380 that’s for sure I Still have yet to find any of this in 9mm.. I think if I can find it in either .380 or 9mm I’d buy it.. thanks for the testing very much appreciated..

Looks to be textbook performance. Id feel 100% comfortable carrying a load like that. Good penetration, weight retention, and expansion. Whats not to like?
