    What is a good bullet weight for a 380acp? I'm going to reload a bunch of 380's for my Dad, whom recently bought a Ruger RCP. I was afraid of using a 115gr round nose, which might be a little to big or cause some bulging in the case. Any recommendations on bullet weight?

    85 to 100 gr.

    The bullet weights shown in your reloading manual for the .380 would be about right.
