How bad will it be when I fire Gold Dot .38 +p ammo through my SW model 36 when it is not marked safe for +p?

Just read through the thread asking the same question except its for a 442. Prbably get the same answers here, eh?

I'd do my shootong with 38, but carry the plus p because speer doesn't list the standard special non+p. I'm required use of the Gold Dots.

sigh

here we go again

Ken,

+P is the same pressure as regular .38SP was before they lowered the standards in 1972.

It is NOT a hot round.

There is a really smart guy which is well respected by many people (I am included) named SaxonPig.

Read this and you will know all you need to know so as to ally any fears about the mild target round that the marketing weenies have dubber "+P".

AGAIN, S&W says you can use .38 Special +P ammo in any of their all Steel revolver that has a model number. (post 1957) There is no way to mark a barrel +P before there was such a thing as +P ammo.

+P means Plus Pressure, not Plus Plutonium. It's not an atomic bomb, it's just good ammo.
