Hornady Critical Defense is my carry load. Also used Remington home defense 102 gr. - both functioned flawlessly n accuracy was suprisingly good for the platform. Yet, they were not pleasant to shoot in a 9.4 oz gun.

But it IS a joy to carry & after all, that's what it was designed to do. if you want more of a range gun, I'd go w all steel 238. I'm just not comfortable w condition one n pocket carry.

Shot mine for the first time today. 100 rounds of fmj and 25 rounds or Hornady Critical Defense. No where near as bad as I expected from such a little gun and accuracy was also surprisingly good. At 25' was able to keep 3" groups, opened up o 4" as I increased speed but I actually had fun with it. With the way the market it now, I'd shoot whatever you can find and maybe you'll stumble on something it really likes.

I was told to stick to FMJ Ammo!! Some HP AMMO has a tendency to jam in the LCP!! I have also heard if you polish the ramp feed that eliminates any real jamming issues!!

I put two boxes of Sellier & Belloit FMJ down rang in my LCP yesterday. No issues. Pretty clean ammo.

I've shot a few boxes of the WInchester White Box through mine as well and it functioned 100%.

Ive used all sorts in mine no issues. I use winchester whitebox for daily carry. Im not convinced enough on hp use in a 380. Especially one as short a barrel as a lcp

My LCP will shoot anything I feed it. My carry ammo is Speer Gold Dot.
