    Hi Mas,

    After reading though Caliber Corner on this, I wonder if you would be interested in venturing an opinion on the top choices for self defense .380 rounds? BTW, I'm following your advice on 38+P rounds as outlined in The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry.

    KC, the advice I offered to this GT member hasn't changed.

    Folks recommend the .380 ball round for "adequate penetration," but that round has earned a poor reputation for more than a century. The JHPs do seem to work better, but their penetration generally IS limited.

    Wishing I could be more upbeat on the .380,

    Mas
