Check again. There is no SAAMI spec for +p w/ .380 ACP. Just because Buffalo Bore prints it on their boxes doesn't make it a legitimate spec.
It's right up there with .40 S&W +P.

Though i shoot 124 FMJ at the range i do use +P for carry, so I shoot some +P for proficiency and carry them as well. Doesn't sound too prolonged, right?
The manufacturer just says that so if all you shoot is +p loads things like you recoil spring need to be replaced sooner. Your probably fine.

This can't be right, can it? I've never seen 40 +P, I thought the cartridge already had high pressure. Also why not just get 10mm then?
