My guess would be that any guns, but some of the imported cheap garbage guns, made after WWII are safe to use with much heavier loads than the SAAMI specs indicate. They are simply erring on the side of caution, as in liability, for those who insist in putting +P rounds in a 1900s vintage gun.

It is also doubtful that a gun is gun is going to "blow up" due to hot loads...it is simply going to rattle faster.

My 649 is also fitted with a second cylinder that TK Custom modified to take 9mm and .38 Super via moon clips.. They both run ammo way over 30k psi and the rounds don't seem to be doing anything negative to the gun...

.38 Super is what snubbies should be chambered for...they don't back out of the cylinder like a tapered 9mm case does. I've had four snubbies in 9mm, two LCRs, one 940 and the 649 and everyone locked up tight with +P ammo...zero issues with with Super.
