    I've been checking my lgs fairly often ghe past few weeks hoping to find some Hornady Critical Defense .380. They haven't had any of that, but they have had Barnes Tac-XPD 80 gr .380 sitting on the shelf every time. I ended up buying a couple boxes tonight just to try it out. Does anybody have any experience with these, maybe even in a different caliber? Do they expand reliably, penetrate well, etc? Will be used in a Taurus TCP btw.

    Yeah, that looks pretty good. Way better than the cheapo Tula FMJ I had in the gun until now.

    If you can find some corbon dpx ,they also should run well. Great bullet design.

    rcmodel good to see a real meat test and the how well the little 380's can perform.

    Yeah I paid $30 for the .380 XPD. Went into lgs today and they had a box of .40 DPX - $50! Wow! Is that normal price for DPX, or is it inflated because of all the hype as of late?

    You my friend just upgraded your carry ammo in a big way.
