380 Ammo

The .380 ACP is another one of John Browning's designs and goes by a variety of names including .380 Auto, 9mm Kurz, 9mm Short, and 9x17mm. 380 ammo is somewhat shorter in case length than the similar-caliber 9mm Luger, it is popular as a concealed carry cartridge due to the compact, convenient size of the pistols chambered for it.

Notable handguns chambered in .380 ACP include the Ruger LCP, Glock 42, SIG P238, and SIG P230. Historically, firearms in this caliber have been particularly popular in Europe and have even served as standard military or police sidearms for some countries.

A typical .380 ACP load fires a bullet weighing just under 100 grains at a muzzle velocity of around 1,000 feet per second. The "snappy" recoil of the .380 often catches shooters off guard; this isn't due to any extreme power on the part of the cartridge itself, but usually due to the light weight of the pistol firing it.
