    I have tried it, where are you planning on getting some? There are quite a few sources around. It is like +p stuff.

    Mr.Apathy might correct me on this, but as i recall NATO pressure 9mm is on the very high end of 9mm SAMI, NOT QUITE as hot as +p.

    Steyrs love it from the reports of people who've bought it.

    The American Eagle (Federal) 124gr FMJ is only $149/1000. FC head stamp on the Nato means Federal Cartridge? You do get am ammo can for $26 more dollars with the Nato stuff.

    147gr Lancer is $128 for a can of 1000 (in an ammo can). Less for 115gr and 124gr. It is good stuff and i would recomend it. While it is reloads it is once fired brass and commercial competition ammo (not talking "some guy's" reloads). Plenty of threads here on it, there is also a 7% off code posted over in GT's commercial postings area which about offsets shipping

    Or ten 100 packs of wwb from wally world is 119.70.

    Not trying to talk you out of the NATO surplus stuff, heard it's good. Just pointing out cheaper ideas if your trying to find the cheapest good target ammo.

    I chronoed some WCC 95 NATO spec ammo from my CZ-75B, and it went 1160 fps from the 4.7" barrel. For reference, Speer Gold Dot 124 grain +P went 1220 fps from the same gun.

    Remember, if you want to reload the NATO spec stuff, you have to ream/swage the primer pockets. :(

    I've shot this stuff - it's pretty clean and has some punch.

    For the money, it's overpriced - you can get better plinking ammo for $120/1000 as listed in this thread. I also shoot a lot of Fiocchi 147gr from Sportsmansguide.

    Looking forward to trying some Blazer from Natchez as well.
