My only question here is - why?

What possible purpose would "hot" ball ammo serve in .380 acp?

"Hot" or not - all that extra (supposed) velocity is going to get you is extended range & a flatter trajectory.
It's not like it's going to get you any extra energy for expansion....

I believe you should examine the relationships of projectiles & how they behave more closely.

If your thinking more velocity will net you more penetration, then you are 100% looking down the wrong path.

Higher sectional density - ie - a heavier bullet - is what you want for deeper penetration.

& yes - 100% for sure, in winter I carry FMJ in my Ruger LCP.
