This one goes much further than .380 ACP ammo, but it's sure worth a look:

This site might be of interest to folks who wonder about ballistics and the trade-off between a shorter barrel and a longer one:

On a recent episode of Tom Gresham's Gun Talk show on the radio, Ed Head of Gunsite made the comment that Gunsite's testing indicated that, when using premium self-defense rounds, performance was almost identical among the .380, .38 Special, and 9mm ammo that was examined. This was especially true when using Hornady Critical Defense ammo.

You can listen to the broadcast here:

It's the Guntalk of March 21, found at 16:30 into the hour.

Whether you buy it is another matter, of course.

Another good source of information -- or at least another source, The FBI Handgun Wounding Factors and Effectiveness report:

Be prepared to settle in for a spell.

Hmmmm....am I the only one that finds that conclusion fairly disturbing? I would hope that 9MM would provide better performance than a .380. I didn't listen to the show, but I'm pretty sure I disagree with that conclusion.

I don't know that I found it disturbing, but I did find it awfully surprising. In fact, I read it a couple of times, just to make sure that I hadn't missed something along the way.

Dep: Please don't get upset by this, but I AGREE with you.

It doesn't make any mathematical sense.
