    Taurus TCP 738 and +P ammo

    I am assuming that even though there is no set SAAMI Standard for +P .380ACP ammo, that it is still safe to use +P .380ACP ammo such as the Buffalo Bore ammo in the TCP 738 ??? In the Taurus catalog they have a statement that says that ALL of their handguns are rated to use +P Ammo. Please let me know what you all think about this. Thanks for any info. God Bless

    Re: Taurus TCP 738 and +P ammo

    I have personally shot the BB +p 100gr Hard Cast rounds in mine without issue, If you look at the GunBlast online review of the 738, they shot quite a bit of the BB in thier test gun without a problem.

    Taurus guns are rated for +P ammunition...yes....but only those which fall under SAAMI specs (.38 Special, 9mm, .45 ACP)

    Re: Taurus TCP 738 and +P ammo

    Make Note of what NYPD states!
    there are no SAAMI pressure standards for a plus p 380.
    a plus P 380 is a 9mm Luger round, if you need that much power you more than likely need a bigger caliber.
    i have no idea of buffalo bores rating of plus p as again there is no recognized pressure for such a "magical round", personally I stay clear of such advertised things as at best they seem undesirable to me.
    how can you have a plus p if no plus rating exist???
    why not just call it a Plus Z or something,if you are going to just make something up?

    Depends on your particular weapon, they are as different as the shooter behind them is.
    generally speaking if the gun is going to chamber anything then a FMJ should be it.

    Try a box of S & B. It feeds flawlessly in mine, and is not as expensive as some. I just ran 100 rounds and the TCP gobbled them up.

    Re: Taurus TCP 738 and ammo

    I like Speer Lawman for hardball and the Speer Gold Dot for hollowpoints. They both shoot well. The lawman can be had for a great price. jrh

    The one ammo neither my SIL's TCP nor my old Grendel P12 likes is that Winchester green ammo with the flat point. It hangs up on the feed ramp of both guns.
