Agreed and ammoman is usually good for gold dots, they had a great deal on cast offs a while back. I load 124gr+P GDHP in my P99, and trained with them in my Beretta before I switched fairly often. For years Beretta said not to use +P either but I shot Ranger +P+ and Corbon +P (really +P+), and Gold dot +P through it all the time. Never hurt it, were talking thousands of rounds. My dad says it's still running great. Point is they all say that, just have to ask yourself how much you trust the gun. I would not be carring it if I did not have alot of faith in the design.
