Heck, I fed mild +P stuff (5.0 grains Unique/158 grains SWC) in my old M88 for years and it never hurt that gun. It's still shooting, sold to a friend. Even hot stuff won't bother the gun if you don't feed it a constant diet. I don't carry the 68 much, but when I do, I carry hot +P. I mainly shoot light wadcutters in it at the range, though. It's an all steel gun and should be at least as strong as my Taurus 85UL alloy frame gun that is +P rated.Qwiks draw said:Rossi revolvers prior or after Taurus procured them, are neat little revolvers. Rossi 68 and 88 models are in recommended as back up guns for newly minted police officers on a budget in a old Combat Handgunnery soft covered book from the late 1970s and early 1980s. They were not considered +P rated by the sources. There are standard preesure rounds that are decent stoppers of their own.
