Excellent ammo that functions 100% in Kahr P380
Review by TominCA
This is a light composite bullet that travels fast. Its made of copper chips and polymer (or some sort of plastic stuff) and is intended for defensive use. How can a solid bullet be good for defense? Because it work like an eggbeater and displaces tissue by centrifugal force as it spins. Does it work? I don't really know - It works in ballistic gel on You Tube and I'm going to guess that it works okay in real life also. But I don't really know.
When we were up at the ranch I decided to run a test of this stuff as compared to 380 PMC FMJ out of my P380. I used a weathered fir 2X4 and shot it first with the FMJ. The 90 grain FMJ penetrated both the short distance (1.5") and the long distance (3.5") and kept on going into the hillside. The ARX did not even make it through the 1.5" dimension of the 2X4. The bullet shattered and, although it pushed out and splintered the wood on the far side, nothing penetrated. I dug out the bullet and mostly it had broken apart. It wrecked a lot of wood, but it did not go far.
For me, I think this is good. If I ever used this stuff for real it would likely be in an urban or residential setting and the less structural penetration the better. Overall I like it but it is a little overpriced for a plastic bullet that is easy and cheap to make. I have 3 Kahr P380's (don't ask why I ended up with three) and they are great little pocket pistols but they are also the most ammo finicky guns you have ever seen. They love this stuff! And the recoil is lower than Critical Defense that also functions pretty reliably.

Makes the LCP a range pistol.
Review by Michelle
They cycle my LCP and LCP II flawlessly, yet reduce felt recoil. Using the ARX you can actually practice without pain and develop accuracy.

Great defensive load
Review by Anner
Pros: see ShootingTheBull410's excellent video review.
Cons: for a relatively cheap production cost (polymer blend vs. pure copper/lead) and the ability to produce a metric crap-ton quickly (injection-molded bullets versus copper cups), I'd think the msrp would be lower.
I tested these on some water jugs, far from the scrutiny of gel. The watery explosion was on par or better than the half dozen other HP designs I've tried. They cycle in my G42 and LCP flawlessly, and shoot close to POA.
Overall, very happy and I'll be keeping these in my G42 when I can't carry something larger.
