I ran a few hundred of the hot Spanish 9x19 SMG stuff through my Ruger P85 (this would be about twenty to twenty five years ago). The recoil wasn't particularly noticeable to me, but I got an awful lot of failures to eject and failures to feed. These cartridges were an extremely tight fit in the Ruger chamber, and did not go in nor come out easily once the barrel got a bit warm. Since I wasn't a terribly "serious" shooter at the time, I didn't really think a lot about it other than resolve not to buy that particular ammo again, so I never took the time to figure out where exactly it was binding in the chamber or why it didn't like to feed when the barrel was warm (and the chamber empty). I didn't know or care to look for signs of excess pressure, so never inspected the spent casings.
