Hornady TAP +P
I have a Colt Commander. I would like to shoot the Hornady TAP FPD +p .45 cal ammo. Is there any reason not to. 200 gr. JHP. This gun was built before the advent of the +P and I am jsut wondering. Thanks.

You'll be fine with the +P stuff... it's still within SAMII specs for .45 acp., but your gun will wear out sooner... that's just the way it is. You subject it to greater pressures and forces than standard and you will accellerate wear greater than standard. It would be beneficial to make sure your recoil spring is up to the loads you're shooting as well... so when you shoot +P you might want to step up a pound or two on your recoil spring.
On the other hand, there's no reason not to trust fully in today's premium standard pressure 230 gr. JHP defense loads like Golden Saber, Gold Dot, HST, HydraShok, etc. It's very good stuff and I see no reason to use 200 gr. +P stuff.
