    And it sure beats it up. I shot 3 rounds through it, and the slide was hammering the frame. The steel piece in the frame showed dents from the slide, so I re-boxed the rest and loaded it with Speer/Lawman FMJ.

    The Winchester .380 FMJ has a flat nose, as opposed to the Speer FMJ's round nose, and would no doubt be cheaper than BB, and not beat the gun up either, so I'll probably go after some of that.

    BB has some standard power hard cast .380 that should still be fairly potent.

    Perhaps a heavier recoil spring is needed with this stout load.

    Did you, or have you tried the other BB products in HP? Specifically, the 80gr +P and the 90 (or 95?)gr HP? I thought you had all of the above (or most) and I know I do.

    Right now, I have a friend who is a cabinetmaker making me some new thicker grips for my Bersa 380 so I prolly won't be a-shootin' it until at least next week. :shocked:

    Maybe some aluminum grips are called for here . . . .
