    If you ever do need to use your gun FMJ are more likely to enter and exit the intended target, possibly entering an innocent bystander. Personally, I would never consider anything but HP for my carry weapon. SDA class here in Oklahoma makes a point to never use FMJ for anything other than sport shooting.

    I'm currently carrying the HPR 90 grain HP that also got a pretty good review in the same video. My problem is the gun store that carried it closed and I cannot find it anywhere.

    Why not get a box of the .380 ammo Ammo Quest said performed best in its penetration tests:

    Precision One 380 ACP 90gr HP/XTP *NEW* 50rds [P1380ACP90XTPN50]

    Here are the test results if you want to check them out:

    The reason I got the HPR is b/c it was available @ a local gun store which has now closed. I hate to order over the internet but will probably have to now.

    I suggest that you go with the better brand ammo for carry. HPR is a name that I never heard before and I have no idea whether to trust my life to their product. There are many folks who load ammo but don't have the quality (repeatable precision of their loads) that I want.

    Sticking with the "big guys" such as Cor-Bon, Hornady, and the like will generally get you better product.

    I ran out of time looking for some vids of HP's filled with wax for better penetration, seems to me it would work I just have no way to test it.
    I did find this .

    Are you referring to real watermelons or Kim Jong-un?

    Thanks Skip, I shot a 50 round box of the HPR hollow points and their accuracy was spot on, loaded w/o any problem and tested as a good penetrator by the "Shooting The Bull" video (I never heard of them either). This info is helpful as I chose my next carry round so I very much appreciate everyone weighing in.
