    Maybe 357 +P ? Dunno. My only revolver is in wimpy 454 casull, which doesn't even come in +P loadings

    I could see them saying no .357 Magnum +P, but no .38 Spl +P would produce more pressure than a normal .357 Magnum. Normal .38 Spl rounds aren't loaded to their old pressure numbers anymore, they're about 10% lower than they were 20 years ago. When you go +P with them, you simply have a round loaded to original specs of the round from years gone by.

    First...There ain't no such animal as a .357 magnum +P.

    Google SAAMI pressures and you'll get their complete charts...

    Here is just an excerpt from SAAMI...

    .38 Spl. - 17,000 PSI
    .38 Spl. +P - 18,500 PSI
    .357 Magnum - 35,000 PSI
    9 mm - 35,000 PSI
    9 mm +P - 38,500 PSI

    As one can see the lowly, in some folks minds, standard 9 mm cartridge generates as much pressure as the .357 magnum.

    Didn't SAAMI lower the .38 and .357 pressures in the early 70s.

    Excellent reference.

    The only real thing that comes to mind quickly is that many modern commercial 9mm loads don't pass the FBI standards test; 9mm +P does. So, unless you are a LEO under department orders to comply with department rules to carry only FBI approved loads, I can't see that it should matter.

    My manual said to use +p sparingly, for defensive purposes only.
