So another over pressure round using the +P moniker for advertising hype hits the market!
Who knows? When I go to the SAAMI site, I cannot find any pressure info for the 9x18 and Wikipedia confirms this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9%C3%9718mm_Makarov

How about these companies putting a warning label on the box stating "This ammunition is loaded to higher pressure than SAAMI standards for this round"
Underwood doesn't have their "+P" 9mm Mak listing at their site yet. I do know that for some of their 10mm loads, they specifically warn against use in Colt Delta Elite and other 1911s without a ramped barrel.

Added: I do see that Underwood lists the 95 gr. XTP bullet with a velocity of 1150 fps but they do not list it as "+P" on their site. I'm not sure what this means.
