Here is something you probably did not know. Many of the low-price ammunition brands that you have never heard of and are wary about purchasing are actually owned by reputable companies and manufactured in the same plants as the big name brands. Estate ammunition is owned by the Federal Cartridge Company, one of America's leading manufacturers of ammunition. Estate ammunition is marketed as range and target ammunition and offers an uncanny accuracy on par with the more expensive brands. Like all Federal ammunition, Estate .380 ACP ammunition is manufactured in Independence, Missouri at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) – a government-owned, contractor-operated munitions facility that was originally established in 1941 for the manufacture and testing of small arms ammunition for the United States Army.
That said each box of Estate .380 ACP ammunition contains 50 non-corrosive, brass-cased cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 95gr full metal jacket bullet, which provides for increased muzzle velocities. These cartridges have been observed to travel at speeds in excess of 980 fps. All Estate ammunition is manufactured using fully-reloadable, newly-manufactured brass cases as well as non-corrosive Boxer primers.
Our Estate .380 ACP ammunition is priced economically with the recreational shooter in mind. This provides for hours of high-quality shooting at a low price. Consider Estate ammunition for:
- Target shooting
- Recreational shooting
- Much more…
As noted, we do not expect this ammunition to stick around at a price of $14.63 per box.
The .380 ACP Cartridge
You do not have to tell me. I am already well aware of your thirst for more information regarding the .380 ACP cartridge. The cartridge was designed for pistols that utilize a blowback action and lack a barrel locking mechanism. Due to the low breech pressure exerted by the cartridge, the recoil spring and slide are enough to buffer the recoil energy, which results in a much simpler and much cheaper pistol. And because the barrel in these pistols is mounted to the frame, accuracy is relatively high.
