    My bedside 380 is loaded with handloaded XTPs. I am not gonna worry about legality issues if an armed intruder enters my home.

    We all know about the handload vs factory load debate. I feel that there are plenty of other threads where it can be discussed.

    I'm carrying the Hornady American Gunner 380 XTP loading in my Ruger LCP Custom. Its 100% reliable feeding in my gun plus its accurate and relatively inexpensive so it doesn't break the bank shooting a few mags every time I hit the range.

    I'm comfortable that the XTP bullet is a very good compromise between expansion and penetration.

    If you like the XTP Bullet Freedom Munitions frequently sells their loading of it in new 380 at around 33 cents a round.

    Yes at that price you can practice with your carry ammo. I have shot over 500 rounds of it and have had no problems.

    That's easy: .380 ACP. :D I'm guessing you probably meant brand.
