Since almost all Civ shootings are face to face I'm not as concerned about penteration numbers. These are in line with most other HP on market. Just food for the mind. my informal testing of 45 DPX has been every round opens and looks like one before it Haven't seen that with anyother HP. .725 is a hole people

.725" That's almost 3/4"
Damn that's a Big hole for a .380
And it weighed 1 grain more after shooting, Must be the denim.
I gotta get me a few boxes of the .380 Corbon 80gr DPX
Untill then the Hydra Shoks & Silvertips will have to do
Thanks for the Report michael t

No doubt it carried a little piece along with it Remember these rounds are copper no jackets to shed. They just open into a nice pedal like a flower. Except for bullet size I can't tell difference between 380 or 45 open in pictures. Also my 45'sDPX have opened just like pictured.
