This round’s 90 grain bullet is a jacketed hollow point (JHP), the ideal for personal protection. Sierra’s JHP features the Power Jacket, which wears evenly spaced notches around its rim that promote more uniform terminal expansion. The 380 ACP is a relatively weak cartridge, but when its bullet expands so reliably within soft tissue it is still able to deliver an effective wound cavity for neutralizing a threat.
Sierra is best known for making highly accurate bullets for competitive shooting. When they load ammunition to tight specifications at their factory in Missouri, they only utilize sensitive, non-corrosive primers and brand new brass cases. This round’s bullet does contain lead, but it is 100 percent nonmagnetic for compliance with many indoor ranges’ rules.
