I've pushed both 9mm and 10mm to failure, in both cases it was in the vicinity of +4,000 psi over their SAAMI max ratings--sometimes a little more or less depending on the gun it's shot in. Too many variables for any manufacturer to "guarantee" a load will work across the board in every gun IMO.

It's up to you to know what your gun will take, and what you're firing in it IMO when you "take a walk on the wild side." It's a rare gun manufacturer that's going to tell you "sure, you can routinely shoot ammo that's rated over SAAMI max."
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
