No doubt lead ones would, but the 80gr. bullet I was referring to was the copper TAC-XP. The petals will certainly sheer off a 9x25 speeds, but I think the copper base will remain intact.
Here's that .380 80gr. at 1,545 fps. http://www.shootingillustrated.com/i...-grain-tac-xp/
It still retained 75% of its mass.
