Why is MAJOR such a power factor that it is NOT commonly found on the shelf with factory ammo, and can only be fired through the most robust of all steel guns?

Since everyone has to reload anyway to meet MAJOR PF (cost effectively) why is it soooo important that the PF be so high as to be a safety risk to non steel guns. Everything would still pretty much be equal among all the competitors if MAJOR was knocked down several thousand, and the safety factors would greatly improve.


I get it. These organizations will not be changing their rules. I just don't see how MAJOR PF being as high as it is in the spirit of sportsmanship needs to be as high as it is.
Every factory 40 and 45 load makes major.

9mm is not allowed to make major (except in Open), even if it reaches the required power floor so save your +p+ loads for shootin perps
