    Default 115 JHPs in 380?

    Greetings...I typically load 380s in 90, 95 and 100 grain JHP's and FMJ's with various powders, however, I decided to try using 115 JHP's in 380Auto. The only load data I can find on this combination is in Lyman's manual (49th Edition). Anyone have experience with 115 grain JHP bullets in 380? suggested loads? Lyman has load data using Bullseye, 700-X, Win 231 (HP38), Red Dot, HS6, SR7625 and Power Pistol. I have all these powders, except Power Pistol, on hand. My test 380s are a Bersa M95 (steel frame), Beretta 84FS and Browning BDA380.

    (BTW, my Kahr's are the PM9 and CW45, none in 380.)

    Yes and I did not feel or see any difference between the 100 grain and 115 grain bullets. I've dropped any further testing with the 115 grain bullets in 380 caliber. I was attempting to get the performance of a 9mm 115 grain bullet out of my 380 Beretta 84BB and Browning BDA380. Whenever I shoot these guns, I always say 'I sure wish they were in 9mm'. I have since acquired a S&W 469 a 2nd gen 9mm which is virtually the same size and feel as the 84BB and BDA.
