Sure there is. Like +P+, there is no SAAMI standard, but that has not kept the marketing folks from offering 40 S&W +P:

Yes, the + P 40 caliber ammo is, indeed, a surprise. Never heard of that before.

Lots of USPSA competitors use very hot loads in .40 to reach Major power factor. You DO NOT want to shoot these in guns without fully supported chambers. Just another reason not to fire reloads you didn't load yourself.

That's what I was thinking. It sounds, 'vicious'.

(By the way: It's, 'Muy caliente'.)

I'd say stay away from this stuff all together if for no other reason that it's going to be harder on the gun. Also, I'm not aware of any independent testing to verify its effectiveness.

There is plenty of standard pressure defensive .40 S&W that has been verified as highly effective defensive ammo.

You will "hurt" your wallet long before you hurt your Glock.

How about 1290 fps from a G19 with 127gr Ranger T +P+. That's almost USPSA Major power factor. (But that 1400 fps with 115s... wow that's smoking).

I have never seen a fully supported chamber on any Glock barrels
including the aftermarkes barrels.
My gen4 mod.27 has as much at least if not more support
as my new Lonewolf and the Lonewolf is one of the best
supported barrels there is.

Great ammo hard hitting and low flash as described. Excellant customer service I emailed the Co. with a question on a Sunday afternoon and was shocked when I heard from Tim the owner within an hour. I still am in shock I will buy from Buffalo again and spred the word.

PACT MK5 Chronograph
15ft. from muzzle
Air temp: 92 degree
Humidity: 51%
Altitude: 558ft.
Glock 23 with a 4.0" Storm Lake Barrel: avg fps = 1212.225/505.7 ft. lbs.
Glock 22 with a 5.0" Storm Lake Barrel: avg fps = 1238.475/527.9ft. lbs.
Taurus PT 140 - 3.125" stock Barrel: avg fps = 1251.9/539.4ft. lbs.
Ammo is very consistent from shot to shot, from gun to gun. SD = 13! Unbelievable!!!!!
25 yds. Avg group = 3” (with all three guns...when I did my part)
I really am impressed that this ammo not only likes the stubby tubes, but it beats the longer ones in fps.and ft.lbs.
I really don’t like the profile of the bullet itself. Next test is; Clothing/Ballistic gelatin/and pork rib slabs.
That test will make my mind up to use this ammo for SD/Carry or not.
Look for my update after I perform my next test.

Shoot true, be safe, and introduce someone new to the wonderful sport of shooting.

So I have an unsupported barrel in my G17? I don't get any bulged cases even with the +p+ ammo.

You can learn much here, proceed with caution.
These guys shoot much more than 99% of the people out there,
they must know something most don't.
