M&P40C and Underwood/Buffalo Bore Ammo?

Hi all,

I'm posting this thread as a newbie here in this forum. I have several 9mm and .45 pistols and was thinking of getting the .40SW in the form of a M&PC40.

My question is, have any of you or would any of you feel OK in shooting
Underwood 165 gr JHP that show 1200 fps?

Or the Buffalo Bore 155 gr JHP that shows 1300 fps?

Are these ammo types over the spec for the M&P?

I just want to shoot it safely. I also am aware that the specs for the ammo aren't for the 3.5 inch barrel. I don't care about wear and tear on the pistol.

Thanks all!

You are fine, they are both within spec, Underwood is great and their FPS are almost always low compared to real world chrono testing, BB is the opposite, often higher than real world.
