In a semi auto pistol, it's not the pressure but the recoil needed to cycle the action. Some target pistols have recoil springs meant for standard velocity target loads and high velocity loads will unnecessarily slam the slide. On the other hand, if the spring is designed for HV loads, it may not reliably cycle with SV loads.
It's not that HV ammo will blow up the barrel.
