I'm just about to order a few boxes of Pow'r Ball 165 gr 45 ACP +p. I have a Smith 325PD with a titanium cylinder. Is this revolver rated to fire +p ammo? It would be an awful expensive mistake if it wasn't. :what:

Does it say +p on it. While it proably wont blow up your gun a steady diet of +p ammo will surely cause a lot of wear.

No, but neither has any 45 ACP that I have ever owned. Many of them, I just called the company and they told me "of course!" I don't think anybody likes stamping 45 ACP +p on their guns for some reason. Calling the company this time around is kinda tricky. I'm in Afghanistan. lol

Guess they're afraid we will come up with the handloader + p, blow gun up and try to sue.

So here's what the company said when I asked them.

"Here at the factory we use 185gr JHP Remington and 230gr HSHP Federal Hydra-Shock. As long as you are using a major brand manufacture and it meets SAAMI specs you should be fine. Yes that revolver is rated for +P ammo."

Once again, it is rated, but it's not stamped. Go figure.
