Default Makarov 380

I'm looking for 380 for my Mak; it's a shame that so many guys/gals have bought up all they can and trying to make a killing on reselling it. If anyone has any to spare I'm open to buying it! Really just want some to range shoot with.....Thanks!!

Good Luck... I sold my Makarov because .380 ammo is getting to scarce.

Go figure... .380 has always been considered as the bottom-end for SD. And now people are trying to snatch it up!

Winchester has some new pdx1 bonded ammo. I'm not sure they have the smaller ammo yet, but the 9mm performs very nicely. Hornady's new critical defense looks like it's going to be hot too, they do have it in .380.

You can't argue with Hornady , or Federal . I personally have a Glock 19 and use Elderado Starfires in it I have a fairly newly aquired H&K P30 40sw and use the Z-Max in it for carry . I know neither of these pistols are .380 , but I do believe both of my brands come in .380

They do make it in .380 & I've seen water jug tests, denim on the front jug, that showed expansion & penetration to be good. I got mine at Walmarts. The only others that did well in tests, that I've seen, are Corbon DPX & Buffalo Bore DPX, both with the Barnes All Copper bullet.

For summer ... Hornardy Critical Defense
For winter ... PMC (FMJ) for penetration as HP ammo tends to snag on winter clothing threads.

I use Remington Golden Saber in my SIG P232. It is reliable and very accurate.
