We test fired five rounds of .380 Auto (ACP) Remington 102 gr Ultimate Defense into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Glock 42 pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .380 Auto (ACP) loads.

Okay But Not Tight Groups with Interarms Walther PPK/S
Shot some of this today and it worked okay. No FTF, shot groups were not too tight, but shooter fatigue may have been the issue. Seems a little heavy for the PPK/S, which the manual suggests should use 95 grain FMJ. But it worked fine.
