I have searched the forum and all went to the manufactures website looking to find out if it is safe use Hornady 45 +P ammo in a Taurus PT-845. The website was unclear to me if it is safe to use +P ammo in this pistol. I appreciate any light you could shed in this. Thanks again.

The best advice I can provide is to simply call Taurus.

I have called a number of manufacturers when I simply could not find the answer.

I would also advise calling Taurus directly in regards to your specific ammo. +P is ok per Taurus spec to fire in your 845, +P+ is NOT.

Here is a direct copy from Taurus concerning +P +P+ ammo

WARNING for “+P”
Only fire SAAMI rated Plus P (“+P”) ammunition in Taurus Models designated by
Taurus for +P use as below. Firing +P ammunition in other Taurus products may be
dangerous and can result in serious bodily injury or death.

Thank you for the replies. The wording in the manual was a bit confusing to me. Thanks for clarifying it for me.
