Question on .380 self-defense ammo in a Kahr P380.

Mas,

For starters, I agree with you that the .380 is an unsatisfactory self-defense round. Nevertheless, there are in fact times when even my Walther PPS or a Kahr PM9 are too big for carry and all I can manage is a smaller mousegun. Also, when I am carrying a 9mm, I would still like to have a pocket .380 as a BUG. Accordingly, I'm looking at picking up a Kahr P380 soon.

I know the .380 results are all at least somewhat dismal, but I would still like to know your thoughts on the best self-defense rounds available in this admittedly sub-par caliber.

Do you have data on the CorBon 80-grain DPX or their hotter 90-grain JHP? Are there any other rounds worth considering?

Thanks again for your help.

Don't know of any shootings with either in the .380 chambering, bro. The DPX LOOKS promising, and their hot .380 JHP roughly duplicates the ballistics of a 9X18.

best,
Mas
