Speer 90 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This is .380 Auto Speer Gold Dot 90gr. Hollow Point Ammo. This ammo was manufactured for a law enforcement agency and did not pass the submersion test. So the sealant failed around the primer or case mouth. All that means is that this ammo may not funtion if you submerge it underwater. This ammo was then put in 250rd. boxes and sold to the civilian market. This is still excellent ammo and functions flawlessly. Most commercial ammo is not sealed anyway, so the sealant failing is not a big deal. Take advantage of the savings on this ammo. It is 75% off the regular price of 380 auto Gold Dot. This ammo will come packed loose in 250rd. boxes.

Ballistic Gel Testing

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 380 Auto (ACP) self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Speer 380 Auto (ACP) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a Ruger LCPII with a 2.75-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Speer ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 380 Auto (ACP) ammo we have tested so far.
