    Default P380 firing Buffalo Bore and WW Ranger T

    Ok, I videoed firing my P380 with S&B 92-gr FMJ, Buffalo Bore 90-gr JHP +P, Buffalo Bore 95-gr FMJ Flat Point +P, and Winchester Ranger T ammo.
    Lots of pictures... freeze-frames from the video with my widdle Canon.

    BB 90-gr JHP +P, a real power house... for .380 ACP.

    BB 95-gr FMJ Flat Point +P, a very stout penetrator for heavy clothing.

    Winchester Ranger T 95-gr JHP... a very good performer for .380 and has the lowest flash and recoil... not punishing to shoot like the Buffalo Bore.

    I'll try to get the rest uploaded as quickly as possible. There are some super pix of flashes.

    First the Sellier and Bellot made in the Czech Republic. This is the ammo I use for range fodder and it seems to perform well. I've shot probably close to 1000 rounds with only a few hard primers... I guess... another tap usually gets them on the way.

    One thing to watch for if you're new to this ammo, is that the box has TWO trays of 25 cartridges and you migh be expecting to catch the rear of a longer tray and wind up with 25 or so loose rounds on the floor.

    I include this ammo for comparison with the defense stuff.

    Okay, now on to the firing with the S&B:







    I've had no real problems with this ammo for range use.

    Now some bright stuff... the Buffalo Bore 90-grain JHP. This is a bonded round and some versions are the Speer Gold Dot 90-gr bullets, and they are pretty stout. It's the highest performance ammo tried in the P380:

    Powerful and really kicks.

    Now the BB 95-grain FMJ Flat point +P which was #2 at the top of the chart with the #1 90-gr JHP in Ballistics by the Inch testing last year:



    A bit of burning powder bits here.

    And finally, the Winchester Ranger T 95-grain JHP, a good all around performer without all of the drama of the BB.

    I love fireworks... pyrotechnics... and Buffalo Bore really puts on a show.

    I don't have any tight groups to display, but I'll post a few targets. The target was previously used, but the 3" circle is relatively uncovered by tape.

    I was in the leftmost lane and this is the 18" by 18" carboard with a paper plate at 15 yards... not my best range.

    First mag on the second picture... S&B, I think.

    Then 6 rounds on the plate at 15 yards... pretty good for me... old eyes and a hasty shooter.

    Then at 7 yards I fired 6 rounds BB FP with one hit at 10 o'clock inside the 3" circle... THEN I fired 6 rounds of Ranger T and put all in the circle... that's a triple at 10 o'clock inside the ring. The Ranger T is much easier to shoot, which can be more accurate and effective .

    I fired 4 mags of S&B rapid fire and put them all on the plate at 7 yards... just having fun.
