    Do ammo that is +P say that on the back were the primer is? I use .38 Specials, btw.

    Thanks!

    Factory loaded +P ammo has a +P stamped on the case head

    The proper term is the head of the cartridge case. The center one is a +P load.

    Thanks for the help! :)
    My gun is not rated for +P, so i want to make sure i don't damage it.
