    I'd use any .380 I could find right now. I've used the Remington and it worked well.

    Ha ha I thought you were looking to buy. I've only used the Remington out of those 2 brands.
    I shot it through my Ruger LCP without any issues. I would think either would be fine as long as its reliable in your gun.

    I would'nt make a difference to me. As long as the gun cycles both well.

    I use Federal Hydra Shoks 90 gr JHP and Federal 95 gr FMJ because I have a few thousand rounds of each on hand. But based on today's market, if necessary, I would use anything that the gun will fire reliably.

    For me there are two main differences between the two rounds... you have a flat tip remanufactured round against a round tip manufactured round... I haven't been able to find any info to compare ballistics data, ratings, specs or what have you... I am also unsure if round or flat would be preferred in a 380 SD round.

    I've noticed that UMC seems to be a bit underpowered, so anything else:D

    With Remington's complete lack of QC lately, I would trust Bubba's reloads over Rem.

    I would prefer the flat point over the round nose. Flat points tend to track straighter in the target

    UMC I have used in 9mm as a target round with no issues. Haven't tried there 380 round yet. I have Hornady CD for carry.

    I haven't used either one, so I can't give you a good call on which is better.

    I use Win PDX1 and Magtech HP's in my Bersa's for PD Ammo, and I use Win Target Ammo for the Range. I've never had any issues with any of the three.

    Like some have said, right now... anything your 380 will Shoot flawlessly, would be your best bet.

    Best of Luck!

    Cheers!

    Which ever feeds and ejects 100%.

    IMHO, neither FMJ is as good a bullet that can be had, so reliability becomes the most important factor.

    Between the two, I'd go with the Stryker, as long as it functions well in your pistol.
