    Went to a LGS today and they had S&B, BB FN, and Golden Sabre in stock.  I only had $25 bucks to spare so I walked out with the S&B $22 for 50 rounds.  I chose the S&B because I'm actually finding defensive ammo somewhat easier to acquire in .380 than quality fmj and it was 50 rounds not 20 or 25 as with the BB and GS. Price per box was about the same for each with the defensive ammo being just over $1/round.

    Good choice. A wee bit pricey, but better than some!

    Geez...  Don't use Corbon for routine target practice...  
    unless you are a trust fund kid.  :-?

    I just shoot a mag or 2 for a function test when I'm done shooting some cheaper stuff.

    I can't wait to give a range report.  I actually bought this ammo in advance of getting my p3at.  I'll be getting it out of laway in about 2 weeks.  Been buying ammo when I can.  I've used S&B in other guns so my expectations are high.
