Default Best .380 Personal Protection ammo

I having a Ruger LCP that I will primarily be carrying throughout the summer. I usually carry Federal Hydra-Shok in my other carry guns and that is what I planned on getting for my LCP. Because it is only a .380 I want the best possible round and I was wondering if anyone uses other brands or knows of better choices in this caliber.

This would be my choice:
Hornady

It is good ammo. Just understand that your Kel Tec P3AT can't withstand too much shooting of this stuff. The pistol will blow up eventually. I just hope it isn't in your time of need. My wife also carries the P3AT however I keep it loaded with ball ammo. That way I know for sure it will feed & fire everytime.

The new Hornady critical defense is what MY LCP is loaded with.

With the nation-wide shortage of .380 ammo, be happy with what you can find!
