I normally shoot and carry nothing but the flat nose WWB FMJ 380 target loads in my P3AT. Over the years I have dispatched numerous four legged varmints with this load, especially armadillos from around the farm. I have always been impressed with the decent size of the exit wounds from such a small caliber. Today I had been out target shooting one of my 45 ACP's using round nose FMJ target loads. I spotted an armadillo, so I decided to use the RN 45 FMJ's on it. Of course the animal died quickly, but the surprise came when I rolled it over to check the size of the exit wounds. They were smaller than what I normally get using the flat nose 380 WWB target loads. Of course I always use the best HP's I can get for defensive carry in my 45's, 40's, and 9mm's. And I'm NOT in any way saying that 380 beats a 45. But I think this further validates my choice of the flat nose WWB FMJ target ammo for the small 380 BUG. That flat nose FMJ, I believe is very effective, while allowing good penetration.
