Looking for data on 380 acp 95 Grain lead

Looking for loading data for a 380 ACP in 95 grain lead round nose. Have found data on 92 grain lead and 95 grain FMJ, but not 95 grain lead rn. If someone could show me where to find such info it would be appreicated.
Thanks in advance.

Either set of data will work. Lead bullets will give slightly less pressure than the same weight jacketed with the same load. Three grains weight is not going to make a noticeable difference with the lead bullet data although you might want to cut the top loads by a couple of tenths on general principles.

With the little blowback pocket pistols, I see no point in pushing for top velocity. You are never going to get lead to expand, anyway, and the difference between 900 and 1000 fps is not worth stressing the pistol for.

It's a good idea to stick with ball powders, though. Getting the flake powders to meter evenly in such a small amount can be difficult.
