I have used this ammo in 380 and 9mm with great results. Devastating results on a ripe cantaloupe!

This ammo is amazing. I personally put it head to head with several other "top of the line" hollow points and personal defense rounds and Hornady won hands down. It maintains almost 100% retention while creating a wound cavity that is devestating. I replaced the ammo that I was using in my concealed carry weapon with the Hornady rounds the same day I performed the field tests. This ammo feeds well and has not given me any mechanical problems. It is also very affordable.
