    Is the +p load that much better than std. loads in 38's and 9mm's, and differences in bullet wt. I know (?) that a heavier bullet should have more impact all things equal. Thanks for your reply's:confused:

    Depends on what you are shooting those +P bullets in!

    Not sure what you mean by better. +P stands for higher pressure .

    In theory, but higher velocity and penetration and expansion are the goal with a higher pressure +p round.
