    I believe so. +P is NATO pressure levels, which CZ-75s have to pass.

    I run hot loads through mine all the time. They are extremely strong guns, don't worry about it.

    Most everything I shoot through my SP-01 and P-01 is mil/NATO spec's somewhere in the +P-ish power/pressure level, and neither pistol has had any problems with it yet.

    CZs have traditionally been tough guns. The SAS and other forces have had problems with cracked frames on High Powers and even SIGs.

    You just don't hear much of that with a CZ, even the alloy framed guns like the
    PCR and newer P01s that are rated for NATO spec Ammo. Even though I believe a Glock 17/19 is as good a gun. Both brands are highly reliable/durable.

    I agree that the CZ is a really tough gun, I have used +P in mine for years with no problem, also I have used +P+ ammo in it (about 2,500 rounds) with no problems. The standard NATO 9mm is a pretty hot round as it must function a variety of SMGs.

    When you hear about military or para military organizations cracking frames or slides on whatever weapon, remember that those guys literally shoot their guns to pieces. Their traning weapons are fired till literally unusable. Particularly the elite organizations, U.S. Delta Force types shoot so much ammo you simply would not beileve it. It is no wonder they break a gun every now and them. And with the BHP, remember it is a 1935 design, and back then +P was unheard of, along with a lot of other stuff that goes into the chambers of those guns.

    They are perfectly suited for +p loads. According to the manual, any SAAMI or CIP ammo is okay to use. They have to pass NATO specs.

    On a side note, There's a little symbol thingy on the slide that shows (IRRC) it has passed the test for high pressure loads. I read this somewhere, but I don;t have a source for you yet.

    +P is OK in a CZ75B. I've run a lot of hot loads through mine.

    The factory recoil spring is a little weak though. It is recommended to get a stiffer spring on the CZ 75, like this Wolf 16lb spring. I've run one of those in mine since almost day one, five years ago.

    Stiffer mags springs wouldn't be a bad idea either.
