9mm parabellum Hirtzenburger L7A1 ball
Ok so I've been doing some research on the different ballistics from commercial and surplus 9 para ammo.
This ammo keeps popping up and has piqued my curiosity-
Apparently,it was made in Austria for the Brits.
And it also has a BATFE warning that its 'too high pressure' for handguns.
In fact,everywhere I look,people are reposting this warning all over the place -but also- people are talking about running hundreds of rounds of this stuff in modern pistols,without any problems.
What it comes down to is this-
Has anyone ACTUALLY HAD a ka-BOOM! because of L7A1 Hirtzenburger ammo being fired in a modern pistol chambered in 9mm parabelleum?
If you have,I'd love to hear about it or even see pictures-because despite the BATFE warning,I have yet to read of any actual EVIDENCE that this stuff causes catastrophic failure of handguns.
Maybe its living a little on the edge,it being some seriously high pressure stuff-but what about ka-BOOMs?
Urban legend supported by typical fed-gov overreaction,or reality?
