+P .38 out of a Taurus .357?

Friend has a Taurus .357, not sure which model. Wondering if he can shoot +P .38spl rounds out of it.

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

357 magnum is made to handle the high pressures of that cartridge.

Any ammo that says 38 special can be shot out of a 357 Mag as they are all weaker when compared to a 357.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

You got a correct answer....why ttt???

Why shoot a +p 38 in a 357mag anyway?? Why not shoot the 357mag if you want hotter??? Plink with 38 specials...carry or hunt with 357mags....38+p is between the special and the mag...and like was said, any 38 load is fine in a 357mag....

Got a deal on some +P but never shot it before. Just thought it better to be safe than sorry.
