    Default .45 acp +p and +p+

    Anyone try any of these two in their cm or pm 45's? What does Kahr say about these hot loads? Thanks for replies.

    +P is ok, +P+ is not. Basically there is no SAAMI spec for +P+ so there's no rule book.

    In my small mind neither is necessary and very little benefit to either.
    I pretty much avoid +P in all calibers but mostly I shoot and carry 45.

    I carry HST 230grn +P in my PM45.
    Mostly because I bought 500 rounds of the stuff.
    With the short barrel of the PM45, the muzzle flash is significant, and the increased muzzle flip, decreases your chance of a second shot in a SHTF situation. Not sure the little extra umph is worth the hassle.
