I have recently purchased a Stoger 8000 cougar in 9mm and have been shooting winchester 115 grain fmj ammo , I notice this stuff seems kind of hot. I have purchased 500 hundred rounds of 9 MM Winchester SXZ 115 grain HP Personal Protection ammo from Bass Pro it's coated with black Lubolox. My other Winchester ammo I shot in the pistol left a crater around the indentation where the firing pin struck the primer. My Cougar is not rated for +P ammo and Winchester does not list this ammo as such. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge or information about the ammo.
The listed velosity and energy are above the other manufactures such as REM, and FED, but my experience tells me Winchester always lists their ammo at higher velosity and energy than compeditors. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks LANCE

Not rated for + P ammo????

Consider the fact that the original cougar platform was designed for .40 S&W and then they came out with the 9mm barrel. Personally, I think you could fire + + P in that all metal frame without a hiccup.

I carry a Beretta Cougar on duty and load it (and all my 9mm's) with Federal 9BPLE 115gr +P+ and haven't had a bit of trouble with it. The cougar is a top quality, well built gun, it'll be up to the task.
