Hey guys!

So I'm letting Remington go, and I wanted to switch over to Sellier & Bellot. those are regular FMJ with the round tip and according to some people here, they seem hotter.

I was looking at the Winchester flat nose FMJ's, are these any good (better, equal, worse) than the Sellier & Bellot rounds?

Personally I wouldn't use the flat nose stuff, might work good in a glock but I know for sure it doesn't feed reliably in other smaller .380's. I would go with Federal 90gr Hydra-shok JHP or Cor-Bon 90gr JHP. If you cant get those just go with the heaviest FMJ that will feed in your gun.

.380 jhp's either don't expand reliably, or if they do they penetrate sub-9inches.


personally, i would carry the heaviest weight fmj i could find in .380 if i had one. penetration is more important than the slight possibility of a little bit of expansion. usually 102gr is the heaviest weight.

FMJs. Anything smaller than a 9 will need FMJs to maximize penetration to vital organs and nervous systems.

Just curious, where did you get the Glock 25?

Thanks Shasta. I had heard cops could get this gun too but most say why bother when they can get a 9mm.

sure :)

it'd be cool to have for a collection, but if you can buy a 19, that would be my option.

unfortunately, 9mm is a no go for the OP.

Gold Dot. Great in ALL calibers!

Seems to penetrate very well. If still worried about it you could load up a couple of Gold Dots then the rest of the mag with FMJs.

Maybe out of a mouse gun, but the G25 has a 4" barrel, I would think JHP's would be just fine.

Of the American 380 FMJ loads Remington is the hottest. Some European loads may be slightly hotter. The FBI says FMJ bullets do better in the FBI testing than any hollow points in 380 ACP. The 95 grain bullets do better than the 90 grain bullets. According to the FBI testing the Remington 95 grain FMJ load is in the top bunch.

What is the problem with Remington?

I think it's the belief that some European 380 ACP ammunition is loaded hotter than most American-made 380 ACP ammunition. Remington is about as hot you can get in American-made ammunition and while European ammunition may be slightly hotter I don't think it can be uch hotter in a blow back action pistol. The made in Spain Santa Barbara soft point 380 ACP ammunition made for Spanish police is about the hottest loaded 380 ACP ammunition I've tried. It's all older, surplus ammunition though. The soft points may not feed in every pistol either.
