with +P and +P+, stick to well known manufacturer's loads. and these loads are best for carry ammo and fired very seldom. Personally I carry Winchester Ranger SXT in +P+. I have put perhaps 40 rounds of it through my XD9. I shoot it a few rounds every so often to rotate stock as well as to remind myself of the feel of the hotter stuff. suprisingly the kick with that stuff is not that much different over my range ammo with is S&B. a little more kick than my range ammo yes, but nothing dramatic. but if you chronograph it you can really tell the difference. the Ranger clocked in at either 1350 or 1450 fps. it was last summer and my memory is failing me. either way, that is plenty fast. It was right up there with 9BPLE from my XD9 Service, if you are familiar with that ammo.
