Q: Will this ammo have to much pressure for my Rossi 357 magnum with a two inch barrel?

Posted On: 6/25/14 By: John C

A: Hello John, No, these 90gr. FTX rounds by Hornady in .38 Special have a lower chamber pressure than a .357 Magnum round. They are safe to shoot in your .357 Magnum revolver.
Q: Hi - I'm interested in you Horandy "Flex-tip" ammo for my S&W .38 police special model 10 w/6" barrel. However in looking at the close up photo, I see they are stamped +P on the case. Is my revolver capable of safely firing this extra pressure ammo? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Posted On: 7/5/13 By: Gary

A: You will find that modern 38 revolvers will be sold as either a 38 Special or 38 Special +P. Shooting +P ammo in a non +P rated firearm is usually discouraged by the manufacturer of the pistol and may void any warranty in place. However, most modern firearms in good working condition will be able to tolerate a +P pressure ammo in limited quantities. This should not be practiced on a regular basis, though some shooters will usually fire a few rounds to verify function, saving the remaining rounds for a carry application.
