The latest Federal FMC .380 and 9mm ammo use cheap plated bullets, not jacketed bullets. Plated bullets require case neck tension to hold the bullet in place unlike bullets with real jackets that use a crimp of some sort (along with case tension) to hold the bullet. I once had a Beretta M84 .380 that had a very steep feed ramp. The one box of "new" Federal ammo I tried caused jams in that gun. The bullet would get pushed in some when it hit that steep feed ramp causing the jam. Plated bullets will stay put well enough in my plated bullet reloads so maybe I got a bad batch the one time I tried cheap Federal ammo in that gun. BTW, Winchester .380 FMC ammo uses bullets with real jackets. I don't know anything about current Remington ammo. I quit everything Rem years ago. I've never looked at the LCP 2 because it just doesn't do anything for me so I got nothing to offer concerning the pistol.
