diamond back 380 ccw

i just bought a diamond back 380 for concealed carry, does anyone else have one of these where they could steer me in the right direction on what 380 ammo is good and bad for the db380.

I had one and a DB9. Didn't hang around very long. The 9 outlasted the 380, by a few months,however. I don't remember specifics, but I remember they were ammo snobs. Couldn't feed them just anything.
Good luck and I hope you have better luck with yours.

Stick with the fmj and you'll have fewer problems with it, and it will be the most effective. 380 holowpoints can be iffy to say the least and a Diamondback can be iffy also in feeding them. FMJ feeds better and penetrates better.

My experience has been no ammo will feed through a diamondback.
I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.

The Diamondback that I had would eat long as it was ball, never a problem with that. I gave it to a buddy who still feeds it ball.
