So another over pressure round using the +P moniker for advertising hype hits the market! If I were to carry something as big as my CZ82 I could carry a double stack 9MM rated for 9MM+P. A round that actually exists on the SAAMI standard pressure charts!
This may be OK in the CZ82 according to your supposed pressure data, but how about Maks and PA62 pistols. Again the +P rating is being used for advertising aimed at uninformed people who think they are buying some "wonder round" that will stop any threat without regard to shot placement.
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" Wouldn't that be a more honest approach?
