What's the case support like on the .40 CZ75s?

I'm probably going to be buying a CZ75B or 75SA in the next few days in .40 S&W. I'm just wondering from those of you that have one, what the chamber dimensions and the case support is like. My SIG 229 is very good in that respect, as well as my friend's Witness .40 full size.

I'm just wanting an accurate, all-steel .40 that can handle my earschplitten loudenboomer loads (I'm sick of tiptoeing around the .40 with wimpy loads that won't crack the frame of my 229 and won't bulge the cases in my Walther P99)!

Thanks

SEE YOUR NEXT THREAD..........

"What went wrong with my 40 handloads?" LOL............

There's only so far you can (safely) take the 40 S&W, so make sure you be very careful.
The CZ should (based on specific gun) give good case support. Wolff recoil springs available.
