I favor the 155 grain Golden Saber with AA#5 runs at about 1050FPS at the G27 muzzle. I found the FBI's ammo study and plagerized the results. I think it has to pass through lamenated vehicle glass, 4+ layers of denim creating a 5" entry cavity and travel 12" or more inches into ballistic geletin. I am sure I have stated some of this criteria incorrectly, please someone out there give us the exact FBI ammo requirements for .40

I have an LCP .380 on back order. My mother bought one for concealed carry and after shooting it I was really inmpressed with balance Ruger created between size, control and accuracy! I also like that is says made in Prescott Arizona just a few miles from where I live! Topping the little 9mm with the right projectile make it an actual lethal weapon. My only experience with .380 ACP is with a Rusky Makarov which was very reliable well built but likes to shoot around corners!

I would carry handloads, and have in the past, though right now I have enough factory ammunition which I am happy with. If I ever start carrying .44 Special again, I'll carry handloads. Probably a 250 grain Keith SWC at around 850 fps.

In 9mm, I carry Federal 147gr HSTs or Hornady 135gr +P Critical Duty. Depends on what I can find.

In .45 ACP, I carry Federal 230gr HSTs.

I wouldn't have a real problem carrying my handloads, but until Federal starts selling HST bullets or Hornady starts selling their Critical Duty bullets, then I'm just gonna stick with factory ammo.
