    FYI:

    Is this a new loading in 380, a Cabellas exclusive?

    Backordered in any event. Dang!

    I'm running pretty low on 380 ammo these days and can't find it for sale anywhere. I hope the situation changes soon.

    Interesting how 9 mm used to be the LEAST expensive, but with this stuff it's the MOST expensive!
    Either way, $21 plus shipping for 25 rounds of .380 is still very pricey!

    Sorry, I just noticed I was wrong about the price - the .40 and .45 rounds come with only 20 to a box - that's a new trick (with ammo not other stuff) to make you think the price is lower than it really is!!!! Pretty sleazy.... :(

    It's pretty common for high dollar SD ammo to come in boxes of 20, sometimes 25.  I did notice that the 380 was in boxes of 25 making it cheaper than some of the competitors.  When I found the link it was not backordered.  :-/

    Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had ever seen or tried this particular round in 380 or if it was brand new.

    I bought a box of this several months ago when I was making an order and noticed Cabela's had it in stock. My thoughts? Spend $5 more and get a box of 50 Fiocchi Extrema in .380. The TAP seems to be a basic XTP bullet; both the Hornady and the Fiocchi were comparable when fired into water jugs; they opened so you couldn't even tell the difference between the two.

    Both bullets look alike; there is is SLIGHT difference in the overall shape of the hollow point, but both come out looking like this:

    The TAP pictured above is on my display shelf at my office, otherwise I would take a picture of the two side-by-side.
