    The Bulgarian Mak in my truck is stuffed with 90 FMJ. The Russian brand.
    Do your self a big favor. In any caliber from 9x18 down. Use FMJ or Hard Cast from Buffalo Bore etc.

    I agree. With this powder charge and caliber, I am looking for penetration.

    95 grain ball (Wolf I think) is what I've carried lately.

    I have some Georgia Arms HP's I've been meaning to try for feed reliability.

    Buffalo Bore .380 +p 100gr hardcast flatnose. Out of my Makarov, it probably runs close to 1200fps and about 300 ft lbs of energy.

    I still have a bunch of Barnaul HPs.
    When those are gone I have Hornady HPs.
