Regarding the use of .380 +P ammo in the LCP for which there are no SAAMI standards, members are advised that Ruger says "no" to the use of .380 ammo in the LCP that exceeds the 21,500 psi limit established for the .380 by SAAMI .

Ruger's position is that you fire .380 +P ammo in your LCP at your own risk (to yourself, to the gun and to your warranty). This warning is explicitly mentioned in the latest LCP owner's manual and at Ruger's website (FAQs under Pistols):
