This is a self-defense round plain and simple. Its 85 grain JHP bullet features a skived jacket and supple lead core, so when it enters soft tissue it quickly expands into the form of a jagged six-pointed star. This takes full advantage of the 380’s admittedly limited power, assuring a wide wound channel accompanied by plenty of outward force that will make your attacker wish you’d simply punched them instead.
Federal makes an especially reliable self-defense cartridge. This round’s nickel-plated brass case creates a bare minimum of friction as it weaves in and out of a semi-auto’s chamber, helping to make certain a poorly timed jam doesn’t give your an assailant an opening. Federal’s non-corrosive primer is guarded against moisture infiltration by durable sealant, which alongside the case’s corrosion resistant nickel plating will help to keep this ammo potent for a long, long time. If you’ve just bought a pocket pistol, you have finally found very good ammo for it!
Please note: 380 Auto and 380 ACP are the same cartridge!
