Hollow points are GREAT, but what about those cheap little full metal jackets? Well, PoBoySpecial had the same question. We asked MrR to come back and put a 95 grain federal FMJ through his Bersa Thunder 380 and see what it would do.
Hot knife through butter! It just goes to show you, a Zombie won't laugh after you shoot him with a FMJ... He won't do much of anything except rot! We give this round through this gun a ZSP of 4, outta 5!
The FMJ is less expensive than the other rounds we tested, but it still has considerable penetration and performance. We consider this round to be very versatile. It did not have as much of a dramatic result as others, but still got the job done nicely.
A real Poboyspecial....
