Is the Freedom Munitions X-DEF 380 hollow point a viable round for self-defense? The Smith & Wesson M&P380 Shield EZ is designed for shooters who are recoil sensitive, lack hand strength, or are new to shooting. The Freedom Munitions X-DEF 380 looks like a good candidate to pair with the Shield EZ, but what does the gel test say? Does the X-DEF 380 give the 12 to 15 inches of penetration we look for in a defensive round? Dave Harris of Target Sports Minnesota joins Rob Pincus for the testing.

This video brings to mind the most popular article on the PDN site, “When Does a .380 Beat a 9mm?” If you haven’t read it yet, get on that.
