Norma 9mm NATO surplus

Anybody have any opinions on the Norma 9mm NATO surplus the was imported around 2 or 3 years ago.

Specifically is it save in my Mark II Hi-Power. Do you find it to be a +P level round or is even hotter.

Here is a link.

The ballistics they're quoting are well within what I'd expect from non +P loadings in US ammo. I carry Winchester NATO 124-grain that runs around 1,250 fps, and yes, I'd consider that a +P loading, but not the 115-grain ammo you're looking at.

A while back Hirtenberger Patronen 9mm was being imported and sold very reasonably. Trouble was the ammo was for SMG's and HOT. Not to mention the primers where harder than hell.

I woudn't shoot the stuff in a pistol I cared about...

On the other hand my UZI SMG just LOVES the stuff...

There seems to be some implied confusion about what constitutes +P. Think pressure not velocity. It is possible to increase velocity of a bullet without necessarily increasing pressure by using a powder that burns 'more efficiently'.
