    Two that I have seen tested & consistantly perform well, both in penetration & expansion, are Corbon DPX with the Barnes Solid Copper bullet & Federal HST, but it is not made in .380 caliber.

    Buffalo Bore has come out with a .380 which also uses the Barnes bullet & it did well also. I have not seen it tested in other calibers or even if it is offered in other calibers.

    These tests were done, using a series of gallon jugs filled with water & with 4layers of denim taped to the front jug. When testing in water, divide penetration by 1.5 to get equivalent penetration in gel, as used by the FBI.

    I pack a 329 PD so with the .44 mag. I worry about over penatration. For that reason I use perfraged rounds in the first 2 chambers then carry 240 gr. HP`s in the other 4.

    Right now ive got awc 230grn hollowpoints in my xdm45 and colt new agent. Ive got 95grn fmj in my bersa thunder 380. My wife is using 115grn hornady critical defense in her xdm 9mm.

    I just use whatever is available in a 230 grain hp for 45. Expansion is just a bonus i dont rely on it to happen. I tend to cycle out my sd ammo about once a year.

    I use fmj in my 380 because i want to be certain it gets deep enough through bone and clothing to hit the vitals.
