Buy 380 Auto – 75
You love shooting targets with your 380 Auto (aka 380 ACP) handgun at indoor ranges. But one thing you don’t cotton to is breathing in the toxic lead vapor which inevitably accumulates within enclosed, poorly ventilated spaces. Buy 380 Auto – 75 That’s why you’re the perfect candidate to give Carbon City’s 380 lead free ball ammo a whirl!
This cartridge’s 75 grain lead free ball projectile is not actually spherical. It’s shaped like a traditional bullet, but unlike a standard FMJ it lacks a lead core and gilding metal jacket. This bullet is made of 100% copper, which means it’s incapable of depositing lead residue inside your barrel’s rifling where it would have gradually worsened your handgun’s accuracy.
More importantly, the LFB projectile contains no lead for hot propellant gasses to convert into airborne toxic vapor during ignition! You can breathe easy while you’re firing this ammo, and you can even put its monolithic bullets in the recycling bin when you’re all done.

The .380 ACP cartridge was derived from Browning’s earlier .38 ACP design, which was only marginally more powerful. The .380 ACP was designed to be truly rimless, and headspaces on the case mouth instead of the rim for better accuracy. These relatively low-powered designs were intended for blowback pistols which lacked a barrel locking mechanism, which is often required for any handgun firing a round more powerful than a .380 ACP. Using blowback operation, the design can be simplified, and lowered in cost; a locking mechanism is unnecessary, since the mass of the slide and strength of the recoil spring are enough to absorb the recoil energy of the round, due to the round’s relatively low bolt thrust. Blowback operation also permits the barrel to be permanently fixed to the frame, which promotes accuracy, unlike a traditional short recoil-operation pistol, which requires a tilting barrel to unlock the slide and barrel assembly when cycling.
