If you got the placement and the penetration it ain't gonna matter if you use +p's or not. If you don't have placement or penetration you'll probably have to keep on shooting till you do.
Interesting discussion but leaves me wondering about a couple things. I know a +P load increases the pressure and that would directly affect the chamber the round is fired from but... If the bullet grain weight was lowered and the felt recoil was less, is that added pressure adding to the stress on the actual frame, recoil spring, or slide etc.? I've heard that some compact .45acp pistols have problems cycling with lighter than 230 grain bullets but would the increased pressure help address this problem?
This is out of stock now because of the shortage on Gold Dots, but I've used it for a few years now and my pistols don't show any extra wear.

I havent had any probs with golden sabers +p ammo. I shot a mag through 1 time, to get a feel for it, and now its strictly carry ammo. If I need it to defend my or my familys life, and I have to replace the gun 6 mos later because of that wear, Im cool with that.
Besides, CDNN just had them on sale for 16.99 per 25 rd box. vs 26-30 bucks at my local store.

The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
So basically, don't do range sessions with +P loads, that's not the best idea. But if you want to use them for carry ammo, I would at least run a mag of them to make sure they cycle and feed well, but other than that just buy FMJ for range practice.
