    +P Ammo PT 111

    I'm sure someone has been down this road, but I can't find it. Is it okay to use +P's in a PT 111 (non Pro)?

    The manual on the Taurus website says
    Taurus pistols were designed to use cartridges loaded to the limits shown
    below. Other cartridges of various types or bullet weights may or may not
    function acceptably; such ammunition should be thoroughly tested by the
    user before relying on it. Because of the widely differing specifications of
    such other ammunition, Taurus cannot be responsible for malfunctions
    resulting from its use.
    .................................................. ...........BULLET.... MUZZLE
    CALIBER........................................... ....... WEIGHT... VELOCITY
    .32 ACP............................................... ..... 71 GR FMP 905 FPS
    .380 ACP............................................... ... 95 GR FMJ 1000 FPS
    9MMPARA. ..............................................124 GR FMJ 1225 FPS
    .357 SIG .................................................. 125 GR FMJ 1350 FPS
    .40 S&W .................................................. 180 GR FMJ 985 FPS
    .45 ACP............................................... .....225 GR FMJ 900 FPS
    GR = grains
    FMJ = Full metal jacketed bullet
    FPS = Feet Per Second
    “Plus-P’, “PIus-P-Plus” or other ultra or high velocity ammunition generates
    pressures significantly in excess of the pressures associated with standard
    ammunition. Such pressures may affect the useful life of the firearm or
    exceed the margin of safety built into many pistols and could therefore be
    DANGEROUS.
