As 380 ammo is hard to find, especially in reasonably priced personal defense rounds, I purchase what I can find. I haven't shot any of these yet so I don't carry them yet. I broke in my P3AT with exactly 100 rounds of 4 different kinds of various ammo I had (all ball). Not a single FTF, FTE, etc. Not a single issue (knock on wood). I am currently carrying ball because I haven't been back to the range to test any of the following in my P3AT. Your opinions/personal experience with this ammo in your P3AT please: Federal Hydra-Shok JHP 90 grain Winchester SXT (older ammo-found at a pawn shop. Someone sold them their 380 handgun and their one box of ammo they had. Still in original box) Remington JHP 88 grain I'm sure that if the Hydra-Shok feed/fires well that that will be the one I carry but what do you think of each? Thanks in advance. Forgot to add that the ammo that I have the most of is Blazer with the aluminum cartridge. Not a problem so far. Should I be worried about using that for plinking?
