    .40 +p Buffalo bore

    Have any of you shot or know anything about these rounds? http://www.buffalobore.com/index.php...duct_list&c=25

    I have a .44 mag and a 10mm that I use for woods protection when camping and hunting in Vermont and Northern Maine. For the sake of discussion though the woman I've been dating for the past 7 years carries a .40 and we camp and hunt/fish together quite often. I wouldn't feel safe carrying a standard .40 in bear and moose country so I don't, however what do you guys think of the buffalo bore .40 +p rounds? Do you think they would be any more affective for personal protection against large game than a standard .40?

    This isn't usually a problem because she takes one of my .357's with the 180 gr. BB rounds (which are a hand full by the way) when we spend time in the woods but I'm just curious about the effectiveness of the .40 +P BB rounds compared to a standard .40

    That's an interesting question.
    I understood that .40 was already at max pressure for the rnd, those loads seem to be 10mm loadings in a .40 case.
    I would call the handguns manufacture and ask them before you took a chance and blew up a gun.
    I'd buy and use them if I could not find 10mm ammo; but, then it would be in a revolver with moonclips.

    There is no such thing as 40+p.

    That was my understanding as well, but that's not what BB is claiming that's why I was asking.

    40+p???? Always though that was 10mm. Sounds like a gimmick to sell more ammo

    Wouldn't shoot them in a Glock.

    No such thing as +P .40 but I have seen where BB advertises these rounds as such.
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    .40+P can be whatever BB wants to claim them to be.

    There is no established SAAMI standard to .40 +P. None.

    And I'd have to agree with the sentiment that if you want a .40+P, get a 10mm.

    Dude:

    He was asking for advice about ammo for his girlfriend's gun in .40 S&W, not for his own personal carry.

    I think that BB blends powders to achieve the extra power without the pressure. This is not a good practice for general purpose reloading, such as we do. The 40 will never come close to the 10, however DT sells a hot 40 load in a hardcast bullet that is suitable for smaller black bears and outdoor purposes. It is a gas checked bullet, so it does not hurt or endanger the glock barrel or shooter. I would go with that if max power in the 40 is desired. You get free velocity with a lead bullet.
