380 ACP – Hardcore / Hardcast

Make of this what you will, Tim Sundles with Buffalo Bore ammunition tells me he is getting good feedback on this load from actual shootings. I’m currently researching and testing for an article about .380 ACP ammo that will appear in Shooting Illustrated magazine. The Buffalo Bore loads and many others will be covered in depth in this article. The Buffalo Bore 100 grain LFN hard-cast +P load was one I tested today. Have a look at this video and I suggest you read what Tim has to say about this load on the Buffalo Bore website.

    Here are some denim covered gel tests of several different ammo choices done from a P3AT:


    I dont carry a .380 (I carry a P32 in the summer months) but if I did I would choose either DPX or Gold Dot for the summer months and Critical defense in the winter.
