    Anyway, it sure is good to find USA Carry and its host of helpful, knowledgeable and interesting Memberships, certainly including Mods.

    Employment history includes an apprenticeship as a machinist-gunsmith. Born and raised in rural northern Minnesota. The most I've learned about ordnance contingecies is that, like so many other subjects, the more ya learn, the more ya realize there's so much more to learn.

    Presently looking for what may be the most reliable self defense round for wife's Bersa .380 FireStorm. Of course I'm encountering the traditional considerations of penetration and expansion. Although I'm aware that the .380 is a relatively modest caliber, my wife really likes her carry weapon and it's performance on the range. Any advisories on what SD cartridge may be most reliable and effective will be sincerely received and respectfully considered.

    I have found that the little .380 ACP has been made a lot more effective with the newer bullet designs and powder development, like the Hornady offerings. In both the .380 and 9x18 (Makarov) calibers I like the performance of the Hornady XTP's.

    I tested both using 3 gallon cooking oil jugs (square vinyl-plastic containers like milk jug material 12" diameter filled with gelatin) and an old army wool blanket three layers thick and they both made it into the second container with full expansion and about 95% weight retention. A total of 14" penetration. Standard .380ACP HP penetrated only into the first jug and stopped at 12", just dimpling the exit layer of the jug and 40-50% expansion and 98% weight retention.

    9mm XTP (9x19) penetrated to 16-17", same expansion characteristics.

    Testing using .40S&W XTP loads were consistently at 22" penetration, full expansion and again 95% weight retention.

    All tests had pieces of the wool blanket in the first jug.

    All were shot from a distance of 7 yards.
