We test fired five rounds of .380 Auto (ACP) Winchester 85 gr Silver Tip Super X 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.

After testing lots of .380 rounds in my LCP, I settled on this as my carry ammo. The reason why is that I got incredible expansion into water jugs and it fed flawlessly in that LCP. I got a mean 5 shot average velocity of 926 FPS. The only downside is that when shot into water jugs through denim, it stopped in only the 2nd jug. Penetration is lacking, but everything else is great.
