If I remember right, there once was .380 cartridge advertised as +p, but not so marked on the box or case. Anybody else remember seeing that?Nu_Agin_Shooter said:WOW---I did a search of the Kel TEc P3AT manual and guess what?
"SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND WARNINGS
AMMUNITION: The P-3AT Pistol is designed and chambered for the .380 Auto
cartridge. Do not use any other ammuntion. The P-3AT will accept +P
ammuntion, however not with continuous use."
That is odd considering there is no such thing as +P 380 ammo.
Name that dissappearing ammo - please. Have you had a chance to measure its velocity?FWM said:I do most of my practice with cartridges that eject spent cases 15' to 30' to the right, and carry ammunition that ejects spent cases straight up and out of sight, never to be seen again. I am sure a stronger recoil spring would bring that back down under control.
Remington Golden Sabre. Surprised me. Even surprised my brother, who used to shoot full auto back when he had his FFL.wheelguy said:Name that dissappearing ammo - please. Have you had a chance to measure its velocity?
I have tried on my P3AT:FWM said:Remington Golden Sabre. Surprised me. Even surprised my brother, who used to shoot full auto back when he had his FFL.
I don't have the tools to measure the velocity, but the recoil, ejected case height and target damage and penetration all were much greater than the other three types of .380 I tried about nine months ago. I now carry Corbon PowerBall in one .380 and the Golden Sabre in the other. (if one doesn't do the job, the other should)
I don't remember what the other three were right now, as they didn't impress me much, but I think I still have the empty boxes at home.
