This 380 Auto load is suitable for all self defense pistols. Customers have commented that this is one of the few 380 hollow point loads that will consistently feed in all of their subcompact pistols. This is a “meat-and-potatoes” XTP jacketed hollow point from Hornady. This load easily meets the FBI penetration standards- even from the shortest barrels found in today’s subcompact pistols. Expansion is adequate, and penetration is an impressive 15″ in calibrated gel when fired from a 3.5″ barrel.
