.380 auto loads
 
Looking to load some .380 auto. Any preferences on powders?

I load .380 using a 105gr SWC over 2.9gr of Unique for my girlfriends Bersa Firestorm.

I have 3 loads I keep significant quantities "in stock" for 380

95gn bear creek over trail boss
90gn XTP over AA#2
and 115gn FMJ over power pistol

I would have to look in my notes for specific recipes

also what are you shooting it out of?

This will function a slide on a semi auto?

I have a great load, but I'll need to look in my books when I get home from work. I know a commercial reloader and he gave me the data. It's what he uses for the 380 he sells. They fire awesome from my LCP.

I have shot Probubly 300 of this load and can't think of a time where I had a single jam. All out of my ruger LCP.

I will try to post the complete recipie later when I can look it up

I'm extremely intrigued. Please share the load. I'm amazed that you could pack enough trail boss in a 380 case to get it the gun to function.

I've done in in 45 but not in 9mm. I never tried it in 380 because I just assumed it wouldn't be enough to function the gun.
