    According to the manual this is all it says


    “Plus-P’, “PIus-P-Plus” or other ultra or high velocity ammunition generates
    pressures significantly in excess of the pressures associated with standard
    ammunition. Such pressures may affect the useful life of the firearm or
    exceed the margin of safety built into many pistols and could therefore be
    DANGEROUS.

    That is the link to a PDF file of the owner’s manual for the Mil-Pro.

    On page 9 it states:

    "Plus P, or Plus P Plus or other ultra or high velocity ammunition generates pressures significantly in excess of the pressures associated with standard ammunition. Such pressures may affect the useful life of the firearm or exceed the margin of safety built into many pistols and could therefore be DANGEROUS."

    While it doesn't say not to use +P, I wouldn't.

    Personally, I don't see the advantage of using +P or +P+ ammo.
    If you feel your cartridge is under-powered using factory standard velocity ammo, get a bigger gun. What little you make up for using hot ammo is negligent on the terminal end of the bullets life. (or the bad guys) and you get significantly higher recoil, muzzle blast and flash with the +P stuff.

    I carry +P in my SIG but - to be honest - am to a degree feeling sometimes there is too much 'hype' about this.

    Sure MV and thus ME is jacked up a bit - but not a whole lot - despite quite significant pressure increases - I mean, the 9mm round is by nature and reputation, a high pressure round anyways.

    I know my SIG will handle these fine - so will many guns of good repute even if not listed for such - therefore, as some folks do - practice always with std pressures but carry +P if you wish - as long as you know POI is very similar - it probably will be.

    I don't like beating guns up - and so would see this as a potential compromize.
