    Rethinking the Botique Ammo

    I've been listening to this guy on several issues and I think he has a point about hyper-ammo (costing hyper-bucks), especially in .380 ACP, my favorite hidey caliber. Our collection of jug test threads pretty much bears out what he has to say. The fodder that seems to deliver the best results are Corbon DPX, which always seems to blow the test material to kingdom come, Buffalo Bore and Hornady Critical Defense. Of these three, the Hornady is the most plentiful in my area stores. I agree with his advice to test carry ammo before trusting it, but that can be an expensive proposition. Give the video a few minutes and make up your own mind.

    Never give the devil a ride. He will always want to drive.

    I use the Remington 88 grain JHP, in .380 ACP. It is about 36 bucks a box of 50, and it has always done right by me. I do have some of the Winchester SCJHP's, but the hole in the front is so huge, that it will not cycle in some of my .380's, but the Remy stuff runs in all of them.
