Max pressure loads, as in factory or hotter. Basically don't shoot rocks and dynamite silhouette loads all the time; try to keep it to 30Kpsi or less like you would for most lead.
Most serious steel shooters will shoot ruger, dan, freedom, TC, rem xp, not smith; there were of course a few pistols other than those though. I shot at a range in OR. with a bunch of them many moons ago.
The smith x frame is another animal; they are built pretty well and I suspect would hold up to thousands of rounds of stiff loads.
