What is cup on this ammo?

Is it +P or standard pressure?

XM9001 is not a +P loading. Factory specs is 1225fps.

This load used to be (may still be) RCMP's issue load.

So it's basically 9BP (which is what I carry)?

The C9BP is 1180fps. The +P+ 9BPLE is 1300fps. They all use the same bullet. Some might consider the XM9001 a +P load but Federal doesn't. Otherwise the box and cartridge would be appropriately marked as +P.

Thanks for replies.

I own an early 90's 9mm EAA Witness Compact.

Manual states not  to use +P ammo.

Some of my customers report velocities in full size duty weapons to be just under the 9BPLE. I love this round and carry it in my CW9. I have been playing with my hand loads trying to replicate it.
I'm pretty sure Federal has the contract to RCMP for HST now.
