.There are only four calibers that can carry a “+P” rating from SAAMI. They are 38 Special +P, 9mm Luger +P, 38 Super Automatic and 45 Automatic +P. There are no other SAAMI approved “+P” loads. Any ammunition in any other caliber marked “+P” is not SAAMI compliant, may be dangerous and should not be used.Only fire SAAMI rated Plus P (“+P”) ammunition in Taurus® models designated by Taurus for +P use as below. Firing +P ammunition in other Taurus products may be dangerous and can result in serious bodily injury or death.Model 85 small-frame revolver in 38 Special. Model 850 small-frame revolver in 38 Special. Model 851 small-frame revolver in 38 Special.Model 85 Polymer small-frame revolver in 38 Special. Model 82 medium-frame revolver in 38 Special. Model 817 compact frame (tracker) revolver in 38 Special.All firearms chambered in 38 Super Automatic. All firearms chambered in 45 Automatic (ACP). All firearms chambered in 9mm Luger.Even if your Taurus® firearm is rated for Plus-P (“+P”) ammunition, such ammunition generates pressures significantly in excess of the pressures associated with standard ammunition. Such pressures may affect the useful life of the firearm or exceed the margin of safety built into many firearms. Unless you need +P ammunition, do not use it, particularly for practice.

Here's your answer.
This is direct from the owner's manual.

Yes. According to Taurus. The caveat is that having some +P use is okay I would not make it a habit to use +P rounds a lot due to excessive wear and tear on the pistol from +P ammo in .45ACP. Some use is okay.
