Recently picked up 500 rds. of the .380 for $15.00/50 at Palmetto State Armory, They were kind of slow shipping but who isn't? Worth the wait, last check at "BIG-5" Sporting goods was $55.00 for 100 rds. Win. White box. To rich for my blood!!!!!!!!!

.380 still available at Palmetto

I just ordered a few boxes - Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics .380ACP 95gr FMJ 50rds 380AP for $17.99 a box - shipping was only $7.00. Let's see how long it takes to get here now! :rolleyes:

You may not like the Fiocchi stuff, they tend to be a little longer than US made .380 ACP ammo. That causes some pretty crappy FTF with the nose of the bullet hanging up on the top of the chamber. Maybe It'll work for you but I tried two boxes of the stuff in my Ruger LCP , Bersa Thunder CC and my Thunder Plus. Had the same friggin problem with each pistol. Seems most foreign ammo runs a bit over on the overall length, S&B pistol ammo does the same thing but their rifle ammo has the same specs as Federal Gold Match. Go figure??? CCI Blazer brass or aluminum cased and Winchester White Box shoots great out of the Bersa Thunder pistols, I'm sticking with what works for me.

I have tried the Winchester White box and the PMC Bronze with no problems - never tried the Fiocchi but I figured I would give them a try. Couldn't beat the price plus they were available - thanks for the heads up.

I realize I'm following up on an 8 or 9 year old post, but I have to agree that the Fiocchi .380 ACP consistently hangs up in the top of the chamber in my Bersa Thunder 380. Haven't put a caliper on it yet, but my assumption is the cartridge is a hair longer than the Blazer Brass and Federal Black Pack ammo I used at the range yesterday, both of which fed flawlessly. Had no problem with the Fiocchi in my RIA baby rock or my S&W Bodyguard, but the Bersa was a no-go.

Fiocchi did poorly in my 380's, but wonderful in the 9mm's.

I believe the rim on the 380 fiocchi is rounded a little more than others and the extractor doesn't get a good grip on it.

Mine never made it into the chamber, so extraction is a moot point.
