I think it all depends on the build of the pistol. I have one 9mm pistol that can shoot +P and +P+ ammo without any concern and another that the maker warns against shooting anything but standard pressure ammo. I am confident that my 3rd generation G-32 can shoot the normal (1325-1375 fps) .357sig rounds without any worries and I wouldn't think twice about shooting hotter ammo through this pistol if I had a mind to. But anytime ammo is loaded "hot" it results in more pressures on the gun, whatever the caliber.

After spending some time shooting GDs out of the G23 and G24 at "reactive" targets (water bottles, wet cardboard, clay mud, fruits, etc), I think that they are plenty for SD*.
I'm sure the Gold Dots in those platforms are more than adequate for self-defense.
