When it comes to the effectiveness of a gun, shot placement trumps almost everything else. It doesn’t matter what caliber you’re using if you cannot land the shots properly. .380 ACP has been a popular self-defense round for decades in part because avid shooters understand that. Law enforcement officers have often favored it as the caliber for their backup weapons and countless firearms owners rely on it for daily personal protection. It’s lightweight and has a smaller frame, making it easy to conceal. And in close quarters, well-placed rounds can effectively halt an assailant.
In order to gain the skills needed for excellent shot placement, you need to practice. It’s vital to be not only comfortable but adept with your personal carry weapon. This box of ammunition has 1,000 rounds in it, and that will give you some dedicated range time. These are FMJ rounds, so they do not expand, making them ideal for your target practice and plinking needs. They’re also good quality, yet affordably priced, so you can spend hours feeding your gun without breaking the bank.
Fiocchi was founded in 1876 in Lecco, Italy, and their headquarters are still located there. But a great deal of production now takes place in their Ozark, Missouri, plant – most of the ammunition sold in the U.S. is also made in the U.S. These are the standard .380 ACP weight of 95 grain and every round has a muzzle velocity of 1,000 feet per second and muzzle energy of 215 foot-pounds. It’s also made with fresh brass, boxer-primed cases, so it’s reloadable. That means the 1,000 rounds you get in the box have the ability to be even more after reloading. Your .380 ACP handgun is hungry; feed it!
