I own a .40 S&W XD and I've seen postings about 9mm +P and +P+ ammo. I did a little researching into it and I understand what it means but I haven't noticed any +P or +P+ ammo in the .40 S&W caliber. Anyone know why that is?
If ammo hasn't been standardized by SAAMI, it could be dangerous to use.
There will be some that may chime in to say something like "I use ++P++ ammo in my (insert make and model of firearm here) and have never had any problems". They would probably be correct (this is the internet, after all), but I would never take the risk of unknown pressure ammo in anything I shoot unless it was the only thing available before going into a situation where I knew I'd need to use it.
