The .380 ACP has always had a dedicated following, but it’s gained greater popularity in recent years. This may be due in part to its manageable recoil, fine accuracy, and affordable price, but it’s certainly helped along by how easy it is to conceal. In fact pistols chambered in .380 ACP are considered ideal for particular modes of carry including pocket carry, ankle holsters, belly bands, and a number of the styles of holsters being designed in the growing market for women. These little guns can also be a great deal of fun to shoot, so if you have a firearm chambered in .380 ACP, you’re probably on the lookout for some well-made target rounds like these from Federal.
In 1922, Charles Horn came across a failing 6-year-old factory, and he decided right then and there that he could turn the factory into a success. He re-founded it as Federal and set about creating an improved distribution plan, specifically placing ammunition up for sale in barber shops and gas stations, among others. Today ammunition is no longer sold in such readily-available locations – although it would certainly be great if it was – but in the early part of the 20th century those sales turned Federal into a success. After that they won a government contract to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant, and they’ve since seen Olympic athletes win gold medals using their ammunition. Federal is now almost 100 years old, and saying they’re a success is a bit of an understatement.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition. These .380 ACP rounds weigh 95 grain, making them both lightweight and within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being lighter weight helps maintain the lesser recoil you like about your .380 ACP-chambered firearm. These are Full Metal Jacket rounds, so they’re not going to expand on impact. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 960 feet per second and muzzle energy of 194 foot-pounds. These FMJ rounds are great for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Federal manufactures them in their factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to stringent standards. Order your 50-round box today and spend some time honing your shot placement at a variety of distances.
