    Question Is +P OK in my 1911?

    Hello!

    I was looking a ammo online, and I came across a lot of +P ammo, is this a ploy to get me to spend more money on it?

    Is it O-Kay to shoot through my weapon?

    I am sure this has been discussed before (could not find search function)

    Sorry to beat a dead horse, but anyone have pros and cons to shooting +P through a Springfield 1911?

    Shouldn't be an issue, especially in a steel-framed pistol. Bear in mind that +P is going to thump you a little harder, about like a 10mm round.

    I would think it should be OK. It does cause a little more wear on your gun if fed a steady diet of it. I wouldn't buy a real large quanity of it and I'd be sure my 1911 would digest it frist. Sometimes they can be finiky on what they will work well with. Good luck.

    Should not be a problem but if you plan on steady diet of +p you might need to change to a heavier springs.
