.380 ACP is enjoying a hayday of popularity, which is due to a couple of reasons. For one, it offers firepower in a size that has not been replicated with much success, or in any way which has been proven more cost effective. The .380 ACP was designed by John Browning to be using in direct blowback actions which are common to many micro pistols. The cartridge which he designed for Colt in 1908 still performs admirably, so why reinvent the wheel?
There are a handful of medium-frame pistols chambered in .380 ACP but they have never caught on. The 9mm Luger owns this market, so why chamber down? No reason to. The .380 is ideal for pocket pistols, but the reduction in firepower is where many concealed carry permit holders are willing to holster up larger firearms.
SinterFire produces a frangible option for the .380 cartridge which is designed to do two thing: stop bad guys, and not harm good guys through the reduction of ricochet and glancing deflections.
This 75 grain hollow point slug is fully frangible, which does two things for it. First, it maximizes the stopping power by creating wound cavities that are just chilling due to devastating expansion, and it comes apart harmlessly when contacting any fixtures harder than itself, which including framing timbers, furniture, and even dryway will take away a lot of its energy.
Whether you carry for duty or personal protection, SinterFire’s 75 grain HP in .380 ACP is a performer that you can bet your life on.
