I am loading for my smith wesson 625 revolver in 45acp and cant find any load data for +p loads . Some Factory loads by hornady and buffalo bore are +p . These would never be fired from an auto just my revolver any info would be great. thanks

Accurate Arms lists a couple of loads. In my 625's my standard carry load is 10.7 AA7 which gives over 1000fps with a 200lswc, but is well below max. Max will get you 1100fps. With performance like that, who needs +P? http://www.accuratepowder.com/data/PerCaliber2Guide/Handgun/Standarddata/45Cal(11.5mm)/45%20ACP%20page%20140%20only%20+P%20data.pdf

Be aware that the N-Frame S&W is little if any stronger then an auto-pistol when you bore .476" holes in the cylinder.
The week link is the thin bolt cuts over the chambers, and you can bulge them if you get overzealous with the powder.
Here are some warm yet safe loads.
