    MG 95 gr bullets. 3.6 grs of Power Pistol. .950 OAL. Very nice shooter in a LCP. Anyway don't use it your probably blow up you gun ;).

    Anyone else try PP in .380?

    Bet it saves you from having to carry a flashlight:supergrin:

    PP is good stuff. I'm hoping to work up a GAP load with it today.

    Steve, been away quite a bit here lately. As to .380, I locked onto Jack and I believe Fred's recommendation of 2.8gr W231 under a 95gr Missouri Bullet, .098 COL. In the P238, it makes for some very effective rounds and does not wear you out.

    Yeah, I never shoot inside so I have no idea how flashy it is. My buddy who loads for his LCP as well liked the load better then his TiteGroup load.

    I know it seems counterintuitive. But this load is not harsh. It's very smooth really. It's a little shorter then the load in the manual, it's only .1 gr over the starting load. I would doubt it's even past a mid level load in 380. It does shoot nicely.
