Corbon 80 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This 380 Auto cartridge by Corbon features an 80 grain DPX (Deep Penetrating X-panding) projectile. The bullet is made entirely of copper, so it greatly reduces bore fouling and hasn’t got lead which could run you afoul of California’s ammunition laws. Its monolithic composition makes this bullet especially hearty, so it parts with virtually none of its terminal performance for having passed through barriers such as auto glass, steel, or heavy clothing. Its absence of a jacket means that the DPX retains virtually all of its weight as it penetrates deeply within a target as well.

The DPX possesses internal serration cuts, enabling it to expand to up to double its original diameter during penetration. As it penetrates, the DPX extends six cutting petals, any of which will thoroughly shut down the vital organ that it scrapes and shreds. Such deep penetration (confirmed to travel up to 18 inches through soft tissue) coupled with such catastrophic expansion means that your relatively small handgun can be of inestimable value during a self-defense situation -- these rounds are a perfect investment in your all-important personal safety.

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 Corbon 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 Corbon ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 380 Auto (ACP) ammo we have tested so far.
