Do P380's create "smileys" on bullet faces?

I have a P380 on order but while I am waiting I purchased a Kel-tec P3at. One issue with the LCP/P3at is when the barrel comes back to eject/chamber it hits the bullet in the mag and creates a smiley on the nose or in the hollow point. In testing this does affect the performance of the hollow point and it can also set the bullet back in the case a bit causing higher pressures. The bullets also get jarred in the magazine enough for them to deform a bit when banged into the front of the mag under recoil. Does the P380 have any of these issues? You only know if you shoot a couple rounds and then rack the round out of the chamber and empty out the clip.
