Today, a range acquaintence offerred to sell me 500 rounds of swiss defence ammunition. The ammo has been sealed in an ammo can with dessicant for the last ten years and the rounds look pristine. He is asking for the equivalent of $205 for the whole lot.

The boxes and rounds look exactly like that pictured in the attached file.

Is this good stuff or junk? Should I fork out the cash to buy it?

Yes. Ruag Action 4 SXF is good monolithic slug with insert giving excellent expansion w/o overpenetration.

Why does that remind me of the Geco BAT?

You mean what besides the bullet design and the Geco trademark on the box?

The Swiss don't make junk ammo.

I miss the Geco ammo. I used to find it in 9mm regularly at my local Sportman's Warehouse (up until early 2011). It was cheap, accurate, had great brass, and went bang every time.
