As part of our ongoing self-defense ammo testing project, we used Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin to evaluate the performance of Remington 88 Grain. Five rounds were fired from a Glock 42 into the gel with a four-layer cloth barrier to simulate an attacker wearing heavy clothing.
The top image in the photo above shows the first round fired into the gel and the bottom photo displays all five rounds. Below on the left, you can see what the bullets look like after they were recovered from the gel. To the right of that, you’ll find a high-speed video of the first round fired into the gel. At the bottom of the page, we’ve got a chart with all the data from our Remington 88 Grain test along with a couple of charts that show how this load compared to other .380 Auto (ACP) loads.

Good Option When Others Fail to Feed
I tried this round after FTF's with Gold Dots in my Glock 42. Two hundred rounds and flawless performance so far. The bullet's rounded profile provides reliable feeding. Additionally, this round has been available for a long time with a respectable street record for the caliber. No expansion but decent penetration, which is the big picture in a caliber of this size. Please take a look at the data collected at Lucky Gunner Labs and I think you'll be satisfied. Muzzle flash is slightly higher than I would like, which resulted in the 4-Star Performance rating.
990fps, 191ftp Reliable, Accurate
Very satisfied. No FTFs, No flyers, and accurate from a Bersa Thunder Plus out to about 40 meters. Still, they are lightweight and push the envelope for a self-defense round. The Thunder Plus has a fifteen-round magazine, plus one up the pipe. I suppose you could just shoot your attacker an extra five or six times, just to be sure. 8-)
My wife experienced several jams using these Remington HTP rounds in her Ruger LCP 380. We were very surprised since the pistol had shot flawlessly with other ammo such as Federal. The HTP is slightly longer in size and seemed to get hung up on ejecting the empty about every other shot. Tried 3 different magazines. It was a cold day so not sure if that was a factor.
