I was wondering if anyone here has used Olympic ammo from Greece in their AR and how does it perform?

Olympic Ammo is made in Greece and from my experience with the 9mm ammo they make it is suitable for range time, especially when one ius practicing clearance drills. I am told that the 9mm ammo has hard primers probably suitable for sub-machine guns. My glock was able to fire most of them with but there where numerous primer strikes that failed to detonate the primer. I had never had this problem with my Glock with the numerous domestic and +P rounds that I had fired, nor have I run into any problems since.
Now I did not purchase any .223 ammo from Olypic, maybe I got a bad batch I would not trust my life to this ammo, plinking would be about it.
