Gel test Results
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 -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.
