The following chart was created and published by Jeff Quinn of www.gunblast.com

For folks who care about such things (I don't); in his video published at this link he says Taurus says the PT-111 G2 is +P rated.

The first column is the Ammo Make/Type; second is bullet weight; third is velocity in FPS.

What surprises a lot of folks is the velocities of a number of these rounds meet or exceed .357 Magnum rounds fired from short barreled revolvers...:icon_ banana::icon_ lala::icon_ banana:

yea, that +P ammunition is hot. Never fired any, but sometime down the road I'm going to have to look into getting my hands on some.

I've got to imagine you don't have expansion issues with most of those velocity numbers.

Don't forget to read the recommended limits Taurus recommends on ammo use. In a lot of cases the +P is misleading...by that I mean some +P ARE HOT and other +P loads not so much. One needs to know the actual velocities out of the gun they use or one that is very similar in barrel length.
