Cor-Bon and Double Tap

According to ballistics101.coom, these rounds are much more powerful than the others. Don't they go by the SAAMI standard? Could these rounds damage my gun or blow my face off?

Depends on your gun. I think the top two are Buffalo Bore and Underwood. Next I would consider Cor-Bon and a distant fourth would be Double Tap if only for all the complaints about inflated performance data. If you have a Ruger revolver, other than the New Vaqueros, you should be good. Buffalo Bore posts very specific warnings and recommendations. And both Buffalo Bore and Underwood have accurate data. Start with Buffalo Bore and go from there.

I do have a Ruger GP100, but I'm more concerend about smaller guns like a Kahr CM9. The CM9 is rated for +P but some of those rounds like Double Taps seem nasty hot, if compared to Winchester and Remington.

For a Kahr, I would probably go with the Cor-Bon, they do not red-line their loads like Buffalo Bore and Underwood. They make really good ammunition.
