    +p ammo is just ammo that is alittle "hotter" than the average round! its loaded at a higher pressure, hence the "+P". and to answer your question, yes! your XD can handle +p rds just as good as any other pistol! i also carry a xd9sc and carry it locked and loaded with speer gold dot 124 gr. +p rounds!

    What perchjerk said. By definition, +p ammo means the pressures of the round exceed the recommended SAAMI ratings. The idea behind +p ammo is generally the desire to get a harder-hitting bullet than what can be found in conventional target or match loads. This of course results in a faster bullet at the cost of higher recoil and more wear and tear on the weapon. Typically +p ammo is used for personal defense, as these are not going to be used in a weapon regularly thus limiting the weapon's exposure to harsher abuse. More information can be found here:

    Check with your manufacturer's literature regarding your firearm and whether or not it has been engineered to handle +p ammo.
