.380 Auto Ammo

show category description


380 ACP, or 380 Automatic ammo, is a compact, lightweight caliber frequently used as a defensive cartridge for shooters who prefer a light pistol with relatively mild recoil. While the penetration and expansion of most 380 rounds pales in comparison to other calibers, the right defensive ammunition is fatal and a good choice for shooters looking for an easy to conceal pocket pistol.

380 ACP Ammunition: More Details

Another great caliber from the mind of John Browning, 380 automatic colt pistol ammo is quickly becoming one of the more popular rounds of American shooters looking for something small enough they can conceal in a pocket pistol while maintaining a certain degree of legitimacy as a self-defense round.

Look for 380 ammo for sale from major domestic manufacturers like Federal (Blazer Brass) and Remington, as well as trusted foreign suppliers like Wolf and PMC. Generally, you'll find 380 ACP ammo ranging in bullet weight from 90 grain to 95 grain with these rounds delivering muzzle velocities in the area of 1,000 feet per second.

If you're new to shooting and getting comfortable with a new 380 pocket pistol, look for full metal jacket (FMJ) rounds. These are the cheapest option when you need to throw a lot of lead down range as part of a training session. While many shooters question if the .380 ACP round is large enough to accurately be described as a self-defense round, many shooters do carry .380 pistols and rely upon them as a concealed carry handgun. If you're one of those shooters and looking for 380 ammunition you can load and carry with you if the need for personal protection arises, grab some jacketed hollow point bullets (JHP) as these rounds offer more sophisticated projectiles designed to expand upon impact, delivering the maximum amount of damage to your target.
