Gel test Results
We tested this Black Hills Ammunition 380 Auto (ACP) ammo by firing five rounds with a Ruger LCPII with a 2.75-inch barrel into calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin. Of those five rounds, we discovered the ammo penetrated an average of 15.84-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.37-inches, retaining 100% of the projectile's original weight.
