Of late, at the urging of Cabela's, Buffalo Bore is offering several loads for the .380 ACP cartridge. This particular load relies on a Sierra 90-grain JHP bullet. Expansion was wide, as was the wound cavity. Next to Buffalo Bore's +P .380 ACP load, this is the fastest 90-grain load I've tested from a .380 ACP. Recoil out of the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard was quite tolerable.
