Thread: underwood Penetrator vs defender in cw or p380

    Default underwood Penetrator vs defender in cw or p380

    Now that these rounds have been out for a while what is the round of choice for those that carry them? The defender looked to have a profile that would cycle easier, but I've heard that the penetrators are sporting a different profile to aid in cycling.

    The penetrators came out first and had feed problems in some pistols, the Kahr 380 among them. There was also some concern about over penetration. Leheigh designed something that would feed better and penetrate less. The Extereme Defender is the result of that effort. They both feed ok in my p380. I chose to carry the defender.

    Topgun1953 not because I shoot well but because I fly for fun, too.

    The nose of the Penetrator has indeed been revised (see pic with old on top and new on bottom). The old nose does not cycle in my CT380 but the new nose is fine.


    muggsy: Let's face it, being shot by a .380 will ruin anyone's day.

    That's an extremely helpful picture! Thank you. I like the idea of the penetrators better than the defender for 380, but was wanting to hear some advice and experiences before I ordered some.
