Anybody have any experience with this brand of ammo? I bought a box of 20 9mm bullets that are marked +p+ at 1400fps. They are 115 grain. I have a few questions..
Are these reloads or new cases?
You think a beretta 92fs and a glock 19 can handle these?
General thoughts on these?
They look like speer gold dot hollowpoints, and I have the regular speer brand gold dots 124grain +p, but was looking for something a little more potent.
Thank you

If you are talking about shooting 100-200 rounds, and keeping some mags loaded with it for self defense than any reputable companies handguns should be able to handle it. I'm buying some of the 147gr +P+ for my 92FS soon myself.

Pretty hot stuff in my experience and it usually performs to advertised levels.

Shot some of their 147 gr. ammo last autumn and it averaged 1180 f.p.s. outta my Glock 17.

Pimpstar00,
Don't take this the wrong way but if you want something more potent you should buy a gun that shoots a more potent round. It's never a good idea to buy ammo that's loaded above SAAMI specs and since there is no SAAMI spec for a 9mm +P+ they are all out of spec. You can probably get away with it but it's not safe and if there is anything at all wrong with your gun it could be dangerous. Why chance getting hurt or blowing up a gun for a few more fps? When someone asks me how hot they can push a .38 Special +P round my answer is usually "buy a .357 Magnum".

The rounds you bought will give you only 75 fps more than the 9mm +P rounds they sell. If you check the Speer site (because those are Speer Gold Dot bullets) you will find out that you can push their Gold Dot bullet too fast and it will fail. I don't know if they will fail but that is also a possibility.

This is just my opinion and it's not meant to offend you at all. It's just a little advice on being safe.

ArchAngelCD, no offense taken at all,your logic is sound. I was drooling on a 229 in .357 sig yesterday. I thought that +p+ was in spec since winchester and a few others do have it for leo only, but I could be wrong.
