For occassional use and SD you should be OK. I , however , would not make '+p' loads a steady diet for it as it will cause unnecessary premature wear .

Thanks for the info. I couldn't find it anywhere in my owners manual.

You also want to fire enough rounds of the +P to make sure that they cycle properly in your gun and to see how different they hit the target compared to your practice rounds. The worst time to find out that your ammo malfunctions in your gun is when you need to use it.

Just ordered some Federal LE Tactical HST 124gr. HP standard load. Couldn't find the +p loads but read some good reviews on this particular load. These will suffice until I can find some 147gr +p. Hopefully I will never have to insert them into the human body.

I've used the older Federal LE round, the 115 grn +P+ in my 2022 with no problem. I agree though that a steady diet may lead to premature wear.

If it's okay in the 9mm model, do you think it would also be okay in the .40 or .357SIG models? I got a great deal on a 2022 in .40 today but no one I asked about this seemed to know.

Cotowar; 9mm para comes in +p and +p+, same with .45 ACP in +p. Last time I checked, SAAMI does not approve of +p loadings in the .40 SW due to the bad mix of large caliber with high pressures, which can cause firearm failures. I think one or two gimmick companies offer .40 +p, but it might be unsafe or just BS. The same probably also applies to the .357 SIG.

As it goes, .40 SW has more than enough power, and .357 SIG conversion barrels don't cost very much if you want to squeeze out ever ft-lbf from your SIG. I'm thinking about doing that to my .40 SW P226.
