Can't ask for anything better than that!
I have also got this figured!! It was largely me. I shot this stacking the trigger. Well its small and simply cause the low shots. Yes the gun still shoots low, but not this low it prints right under the front sight out @ 30'.Shot about a hundred more rounds threw this lil booger today!
I have a very impressive load worked up with 231 thats averaged over 1025 fps three times now. This is excessively impressive knowing it acheived with less than .005 case head expansion and a 2.7" barrel. I have dropped that charge .5 and enjoy a 950 fps average with lower es numbers.
Shot allot today @ 21' for accuracy. They trigger is good for what it is its inconstant. I need to look into this probably rough surfaces or a few burrs.
I noticed some consistent skuff marks on the brass. I found a rought ejection port edge and two very sharp corners in the slide. I polished a d stoned the areas and altho I still see the spots, they are FAR less damaging to the brass.
I bought something I never thought Id own.... a LEE bulge buster!
As I was building loads, I started 3.5g working up .2 10s over. As the pressures here are so low normal "watches" dont occur. So I looked at case heads and @ 4.0g I re sized and cases slid right into a case gauge. But @ 4.1 it needed persuasion and @ 4.2 even a SB 223 die wouldn't allow them to slide in that gauge freely. PLUS the fact that this is a small light pistol and Id rather not wear a part of the slide... So just as book says 4.0 is a max and for safetys sake only small diet if those will see use. 3.9 will be my load.
The BB is just easier then using a Small Base sizer as its not made for such a case shape. (But works wonderfully. Unlike the 9mm, The 380 case could, conceivably be cut from a 223 case.)

I posted another video to my Utube channel. But I cannot post a link. Link to my channel is in my Signature.
My lil LEE 95/RF (WFN) is same weight but better profile (IMHO) The HP is impressive for sure, but many wont choose a HP as the caliber generally is just or not quite making FBI Minimums. The LEE bullet is averaging 1034 fps.94 grains @ 1000 FPS is honking right along for a 380. That expansion is CLASSIC. That load might do to ride the river with.
