    To my admittedly limited knowledge, there is no such thing as +p ammunition in .40 S&W. I know black hills labels one of its .40 loads as +P, but in reality it is similar pressure to other .40 loads.

    .40 ammo is loaded pretty hot as it is I think. I'd be afraid of anything +P rated in .40. Any bullet setback in the case from too many chamberings and boom.

    It's not a SAAMI standard, so they can call it 40 +P, or +P+, or 40 Magnum, etc. I think Corbon used to make something with the +P label. A SAAMI standard 40 +P is called the 10mm...;)
  5. ok..I wasn't sure. Thank you

    If you are looking to buy ammo online, Midwayusa has really competitive prices and fast shipping. Cheaperthandirt and Cabelas are both good as well.

    Peter Pi and the gang at Corbon load some pretty hot .40 ammo. I use the 135 grain JHPs for my home defense load. However, I find the pump 12-gauge with seven rounds of 00 buck under the bed to be somewhat more...comforting.

    Their .40S&W loads are a little hotter than most stuff out there, but not considered +p.
