You can shoot any caliber you want in Production, 9mm P or larger.
It is just that they are all SCORED the same as 9mm at Minor Power Factor.
Your G23 will be fine.

You can take advantage of major power factor scoring if you shoot in Limited 10, though there will probably be LOTS more competition in Production.

Do yourself a favor and forget about minor/major scoring.
It just makes for sloppy shooting.
Just try to hit all As and it won't matter.
