Black Hills Ammunition 90 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

The exceeding quality of Black Hills Ammunitions’ products has earned them pretty much the most prestigious clients an ammunition manufacturer could ever hope to have. They regularly supply their ammo for testing purposes to firearm manufacturers including Beretta, ArmaLite, Kimber, and Marlin, and their 5.56x45 ammunition goes very often to all branches of the U.S. Military. Law enforcement agencies throughout the country invest in Black Hills’ ammo as well -- their founder Jeff Hoffman served as a cop for 37 years, so he understands dearly what the men and women of the force need to remain effective at their jobs.

This 380 ACP cartridge is capped with a 90 grain projectile, an extremely popular bullet weight for its caliber. The bullet is able to penetrate targets reliably thanks to its 950 fps muzzle velocity and hard metal jacket, the latter of which has notches running down from its tip in order to facilitate reliable expansion. This round’s brand new brass casing is just the thing for handloading as well.

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