Magtech 77 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Magtech has been manufacturing quality ammunition since 1926. Commercially recognized internationally, Magtech exports products to more than 50 countries. Manufacturing all their own components, Magtech retains total control over every stage of the production process, ensuring consistency and quality with every round that leaves the factory. The company uses only the highest quality raw materials and state-of-the-art production techniques to produce some of the finest ammunition available to the modern shooter.



Magtech First Defense Copper features a lead-free solid copper hollow point projectile. Weighing in at 77 grains, the solid construction of these bullets eliminates the threat of core/jacket separation. The result is maximum energy transfer and 100 percent weight retention for hard-hitting terminal performance.



Each box contains 20 rounds of factory fresh .380 Auto (ACP) ammunition. Leaving the muzzle at a velocity of 1099 feet per second, each round delivers 207 foot pounds of muzzle energy. This ammunition is non-corrosive, boxer primed, reloadable, and brass cased. Like all Magtech products, First Defense Copper meets SAMMI and CIP specs.


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