    Since I live in Santa Barbara (CA), I might pick some up just for the cool factor, but I probably wouldn't shoot much of it, I don't like to abuse my guns with NATO spec ammo.

    Never used it, but it's my understanding that it's equivilant to +P 9mm. It's FMJ of course.

    I thought about it, but like Zer000, I figured why abuse my guns with a regular diet of hot range ammo when I can buy Winchester, CCI or S&B range fodder for just as cheap if not cheaper.

    The advantage to this ammo would be that the primer and case mouth will be sealed. It should store and remain fireable almost forever. Personally I keep a generous supply of similar ammo tucked away just in case SHTF day ever comes.
