That does not jive with most of the tests I have seen. But I guess it could depend on what you mean by subpar? It doesn't perform as well as some FMJs if you only look at penetration but it nearly always performs in the top 3 of all .380HPs that actually open up. There is more to balistics than pentration. You can always choose which of the factors is important to you and which is not and pick the "Best" ammo for that one item, but overall, DPX seems to be one of the best performers in all the tests I have seen.Gatordave said:I believe someone did testing that showed DPX to be a subpar performer for penetration which I have read is important for a 380.
That was not the "First Defense" ammo that is solid copper but rather a jacketed lead bullet.Gatordave said:Warty, the magtech was reviewed as well in that homegrown Corbon test that is linked on this thread. It looks like it did not do too well.
