Default bodyguard 380 ammo

Just bought a bodyguard 380.. With the ammo being so hard to find I was hoping to avoid trial and error. What works best in this gun? Thanks.

They're loaded hot, which is important for short barrelled pistols like the Bodyguard, and the Lehigh Defense bullet design is excellent. It's expensive, but the price of reliability is worth it.
