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.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

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?
