I know there are many threads on this +P subject, but I have a very specific question.
Was the Taurus 85 UltraLight originally rated 38 special, until a point in time when it was +P rated? If so, what year was that?
And why it keeps saying "38 special" in the barrel?....and in the manual? Is it because this +P rating means that it is only capable of just occasional handling of +P ammo?

Only two defining forces ever died for you:
1. Jesus Christ.
2. The American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, & Marine.
One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.

Agree with badge851 there. The Taurus online manual says these M85 revolvers are +P rated.
If you want there are Buffalo Bore Ammunition | Strictly Big Bore - Strictly Business
.38 Special standard pressure rounds that have +P velocity, but do not have the high pressures and recoil that +P loads have.
Stay away from the hard cast bullet load.
