That's an easy answer.

No 380 performs in the 9mm range with expansion and penetration. It's not a question of bullet weight, fps, or lbs.

None are hitting .70+ expansion at 18" penetration.

If they did, 380 in a pocket size would be the clear winner in the single stacks. At 12-14" and expansion, Federal's new DEEP and XTP kinda does make it 380 acceptable. You're 2 inches from average 9mm penetration. XTP is designed not to expand as much though. So 380 technology hasn't worked out yet.

Look at my P365 vs the LCP. LCP is acceptable because it's hugely smaller.
