Gel test Results
We tested this Remington Ammunition 380 Auto (ACP) ammo by firing five rounds with a Ruger LCPII with a -inch barrel into calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin. Of those five rounds, we discovered the ammo penetrated an average of 17.4-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.35-inches, retaining 100% of the projectile's original weight.
On this page, you'll see video of our tests including photographs that detail the ammunition before/after firing it through a four-layer barrier into gelatin. Also, you'll see how this Remington Ammunition 380 Auto (ACP) ammunition stacks up compared to other self-defense rounds in 380 Auto (ACP).
