Yep. Not much to add to what's already been said except that the Sta. Barbara factory also produced 9mm largo ammunition for the M1921 Astra 400s and Stars and so on too. Believe-it-or-not but Santa Barbara is the patron saint of the artillery. (Also firemen, go figure...) Toledo is home to the Alcazar castle/military school which was a big deal for Franco's forces during the Spanish Civil War, and now is slated to be the new Spanish army museum. Ammo has been produced there in Toledo for a long time.

I shoot the 9mm largo stuff in a 1937-mfr Astra 400 and a 1961-mfr "Destroyer" carbine. I think you'll find it is Berdan primed and therefore not reloadable, if that is a factor in your decision of whether to buy or not.
