    I wanted to thank all who contributed to this discussion. I’m carrying the Federal 90 grain HP in my LCP b/c I can get them in a 50 round box at a local gun show, and they’re pretty effective in the tests I’ve researched. They also feed reliably in the LCP and LCPII.

    For FMJ carry in the 380, I really like the SigSauer Elite Performance.

    My carry fave ammo is Lehigh Defense's Xtreme Defense. That's the one that looks like a sawed off Philips screwdriver tip in solid copper. Seems to run well in my LCPII.

    Whoops, old thread....

    Yes it is a old thread but very good data. For those of us considering getting into the 380 caliber. You hear many things about the LCP series online and I can rely on real world users for their experience but do not trust the reviews sometimes. My neighbors have the 10th anniversary model all 3 use Lehigh Defense's Xtreme Defense with good reports. It is nice when you find ammo that cycles your firearm reliably. Still deciding on getting a LCP in 380 here. Just bought the LCPII 22LR and have had great results so far.
    I miss ETS and his input.

    In talking to Pete at Lehigh Defense, he says they have an Xtreme Cavitator similar to the one in .32acp in the works for .22lr. It would be crazy expensive compared to other .22lr ammo but it would make a .22lr carry a possibility with the penetration of a velocitor but the wound channel of hollow point.

    That would be a interesting round for the .22LR and others have been talking about some of these rounds this past year. After the Glock 22LR, Ruger LCPII22LR and others. There are many manufacturers offering 22lr platforms for carry so you would think that the ammo makers would come up with a reliable SD round. I find this very interesting. I went from my 1911's and 38's to 9mm for carry because of aging and cost factors so any other round has peaked my interest these past x2 years. Still trust my 38/357 and 9mm auto's but will be interested in any other caliber if reliable.

    I have tried a lot of different types of HD ammo's but I keep coming back to Federal Hydra Shok. They consistently have been more accurate in my G1 LCP. Blazer Brass Ball practice ammo takes a close second.

    Great round! I like Underwood's ammo running the same bullet, as the muzzle velocity is 150 fps higher, and that is not even considering they also make a +P version. They also took the 65grain Xtreme Defense bullet and put it in a full sized 9mm Luger round, with 1,700 fps muzzle velocity! (1,800 in their +P)
