so what? Neither you nor this forum constitute all ofmy history on the Net,ya know. The REAL test is to go ahead to either blow a case,or bulge one badly, then back off onthe powder charge. how you THINK SAAMI and the reload manual writers came up with their "max" loads, hmm? they found the WEAKEST brass,MOST LAMEASSED gun that exist,in a given caliber, and the SECOND anything made their wussy asses NOTICE anything, THAT was the "max"load. NATO 9mm is perfectly safe in a POORLY supportive Beretta barrel, and NATO spec 9is WAY beyond "plus P" SAAMI specs. You can safetly, in a good gun like the P35, load the 9mm WAY hotter than the loading manuals claim.
