I have a new 24/7 OSS .45 acp pistol and for a self defense round I picked up a 20rd box of Hornady TAP FPD .45 acp 230 gr. jacketed hollow points ammo.

I have not shot any yet, and I'm wondering if I should. It's actually a +P load, and I missed that fact when I bought them.

The Taurus OSS manual shows recommended loads with muzzle velocities of 835 fps, but these shells are rated at 950 fps muzzle velocity.

Should I be using this Hornady ammo? Is this pistol suitable for +P loads?

Your pistol will be fine using the load you have listed. Your 24/7 OSS is +P rated according to Taurus Int'l.

Thanks, I've been on their website and it's so slow I can't find anything.

Yep, it was my understanding that every Taurus firearm except for the 856 with the magnesium frame was +p rated. By the way, I have some of the TAP ammo in .40 and it is a great loading. It should work well for you.
