    Nutshell, +P is higher pressure than standard loads for that caliber and +P+ is higher than +P.

    i've never heard of factory loads coming higher pressure than +P+ myself.

    Back in WWII, the Germans used to load some 9mm hotter than pistol rounds for their SMGs, but i don't know of any widely circulated high-power, SMG specific ammo these days.
