I was given a box of MagTech Guardian Gold 380 +p 85gr. JHP. Is this safe to use in a P3AT? I didn't even know that they made +p ammo in 380.

There is no actual standard for +P 380, try a search IIRC there was a report of a Kaboom caused by that ammo. I might be thinking of Magsafe but I want to say it was the Magtech. :-/

+ P means the round is load with more powder, thus higher Pressure than the MAXIMUN recomended by SAAMI (small arms ammo manufactors insti)

First time I saw +P on an ammo advertisement it had (penetration) in quotation, which would not be incorrect, but further study proved Preasure to be proper. Jim <><
