Officially Magnum Research does not recommend using +P rounds in .45 ACP. Unofficially, I have seen many reviews and articles talking about shooting +P without problems. I wouldn't hesitate to use +P rounds in the .45 but I won't speak for 9mm. It's rock solid. I think Magnum Research blinked on this because they don't want to do the testing to validate they are safe to use.

So do they get stripped with the higher pressure/ power ammo? Also why would the CZ75 be able to handle them but not the BE? they should use the same design since they are based on the same gun right?

Hardly and manufacturer is going to say its recommended to shoot +p. Just like they don’t recommend shooting reloaded ammo. Just think of it like you would any other thing in this world these days, if anyone can be released or relieved from any responsibility or liability they are going to do it.

It’s not like all your shooting is going to be +p ammo anyway. Get an idea what it’s like to sit down and shoot 1000 rounds of ammo first, then worry about wearing out guns. Been around firearms all my life , some firearms that have been through generations and as long as they are maintained well they don’t wear out too easy.

I have the steel, I left the plastic for XDm(Springfield Armory). The heavier steel makes it a more stable platform and more enjoyable. Browning doesnt recommend +Ps either you can shoot them, but it will take a toll on your firearm. A round with more juice will wear a gun faster. If you like a juicier round try a 40 cal., more penetration. 9mm are good and cheap.Practice, practice, practice.

Just buy Springfield XDM. It will handle any load, handle lazer. Never jam, and don't look back!

Dude you’re not getting it......SHOT PLACEMENT, PRACTICE SHOT PLACEMENT. The 3 most popular cartridges between the service/defensive pistols, 9mm-40S&W-45ACP, are all going to fail if not PLACED IN THE SPOT ON THE BAD GUY THAT IS GOING TO STOP BLOOD PUMPING , START BLOOD LEAKING VERY FAST OR STOP BRAIN ACTIVITY…….you can do this with a 22 LR.
Look at you budget, look at your resources, look at how much time you are truly going to be putting into this to become proficient, choose your caliber. They are all capable, they are only as capable as you and the time you put in learning how to shoot and fight with a pistol. It takes a lot of dedication, not going to happen overnight.

I think 9mm is more likely to over penetrates because of higher velocity, but thats what hollow points are for.
