    Will a CZ handle +P and +P+ ammo without damaging the pistol? What are the better "surplus" ammos in 9mm? What do you shoot for target and plinking?
    Thanks

    The P's will do fine. However, the increased loads will cause more wear and tear on the gun. I use Winchester 115 gr FMJ or Magtech 115gr FMJ for practise and Speer Gold Dot 127gr JHP for carrying In my 75B 9mm.

    My CZ SP-01's have taken thousands of L7A1's. That's as hot as it gets.

    Call CZ and ask them (just for your own peace of mind).

    I called 'em. They say +P is ok.

    They didn't mention +P+. Personally I've fired only a few hundred +P's thru both of my CZ-75's without incident but would be leary of firing +P+'s. SAAMI recognizes +P but not +P+; that's reason enough for me to avoid them.

    My very unscientific stance on the CZ-75B is that it feels the most solid of all my centerfire autoloaders. I imagine it would take a whole lot of +Ps to do anyting noticable. I usually shoot Winchester USA 115gr or Remington UMC 115gr. I get them in 250 packs from Outdoor World.

    Well

    if you're looking for cheap, than there's no need to shoot surplus. New commercial is just as cheap. If you look around you can do under $5 per box.

    The +P thing is funny. It is mostly a marketing game. +P+ on the other hand is asking for trouble because what is +p+ anyways (quantify it).

    CCI Blazer
    Winchester White Box
    Wolf
    etc. etc.
    Geco used to be cheap

    My 75B shoots anyhing that I can put into it and never even flinches. Obviously, the more +P you feed ANY gun the faster it is going to wear, but CZs are notoriously tough. The only difference I have noticed from a few thousand rounds I have put through mine is that the trigger smoothed out.

    What is the difference in specs of the regular CZ75B with the CZ75 SP-01 model?

    the most accurate out of my 75b is...

    Standard pressure 124 gr speer gold dot hollow points. These are seet. I used to get them super cheap but not any more :(

    What is the std. nato round I forget? You can get plenty hot 9mm without going +p imho.

    For me and my pistol 124gr. regardless of design or manufacturer is noticably easier to control and place on target than either 115 or 147.

    Another thing and this is just me talkin but I prefer standard pressure ranges on all my guns.

    If I felt the need for +p anything it is time for me to get a bigger gun. Actually the least recoil that will get the job done the faster I can place another shot on the same target or the next.

    If 9 wasn't enough I would move up to .357sig .40s&w or .45 or whip out a wheel gun and look to call in the real thunder.
