This is what i read from another site.
Virtually identical to 9mm +P, but it's not labeled as such because it's made to military rather than SAAMI specs.
I don't think +p should be used in a shield?

As Rich G wrote, I've also been told that NATO is pretty much on par with +P, so it would be a hotter load.
as for use of +P in a Shield:
Quote:
Shield Manual, Page 11:
“Plus-P” (+P) ammunition generates pressures in excess of the pressures associated with standard ammunition. Such pressures may affect the wear characteristics or exceed the margin of safety.
Use of “Plus-P” ammunition may result in the need for more frequent service.
So basically, one CAN use +P, but continued use of it (as range fodder) could require more frequent replacement of 'wearable' parts (springs, maybe the extractor, etc)
Many do use Speer Gold Dot 9mm 124gr+P as their defensive load without issue.
