The .380 ACP rimless, straight-walled pistol cartridge developed by firearms designer John Moses Browning and first produced by Colt in 1908 has come along way since then...

with ballistics close to and matching those of the 9mm Parabellum, it is now a very viable self defense cartridge, especially when loaded with Hornady XTP 90 grain bullets.

Agree WB1

Thought this was one of the keys in the article along with other observations.

The best database of handgun performance I’ve yet seen comes from Greg Ellifritz at Active Response Training. His results, compiled from hundreds of actual shootings over many years, show that while the .380 doesn’t work quite as well as the 9mm, .40 S&W, or .45 ACP in its job of stopping attackers, it’s also not that far off.
