    No list that I know of.
    And it would be an awful big list.

    Glock is the only one that has been getting the bad press about it for the last 15+ years though.

    If you use a little discretion & common sense when loading, it doesn't make a bit of difference anyway.

    if You want to know, field strip, and drop a round into the chamber.. it'll be obvious enough. Not really an issue if you don't actually own the gun. Most gunshops I know will show you how to field strip a gun (though they may not like the drop test).

    May I add, I load for this gun and have no case bulging at all. I use a calm to mid-power load.

    I doubt anyone has compiled such a list. That leaves it wide open for you to do. ??

    I measure my guns occationally.

    Pistol case sup margin web *Pressure rating
    Patriot 45acp .... .180"..... .180" .... 0" ....21,000psi
    Colt 1911 45acp .225 .180 -.045 21,000psi
    Para Ordinance 45acp .235 .180 -.055 21,000psi
    Glock 20 10mm .250 .180 -.070 37,500psi measures .275, .280, gunzone quotes me at .306"
    Glock 22 40sw .235 .180 -.055 35,000psi
    Beretta 92S 9mm .163 .160 -.003 35,000psi
    Beretta 92S chamber wall .1" thick
    Kel-Tek P11 .190 .160 -.030 35,000psi
    Glock 19 9mm .190 .160 -.030 35,000psi
    Star Firestar .165 .160 -.005 35,000psi
    CZ52 9mm .145 .160 +.015 35,000psi
    Tokarev 9mm .160 .160 0 35,000psi
    CZ52 7.62x25mm .185 .185 0 42,000cup
    Tokarev 7.62x25mm .170 .185 +.015 42,000cup
    Berretta 1934 .380 .170 .175 +.005 17,000cup
    Kel-Tek P32 32acp .250 .150 -.100 20,500psi
    Savage 1917 .240 scribe, .265 bulge
    P3AT Gen I .270"
    P3AT Gen II .275"


    I can see my list is not up to date. The LCP is in the same category as the P3AT.... 1100 fps 90 gr is the most I can get.

    If I scribe the feed ramp line on a case with a needle, the measurement I get is always bigger than when I measure the edge of a case bulge, by ~ .010"
