Is it better ie. hotter than Winchester White Box? A little more pricey than WWB, but it states that it is new ammo.

From their site:

If it is genunie NATO spec ammo, then yes it is hotter than your standard 9mm FMJ load out there.

Military M882 (IIRC) is +p+. In fact, most 9mm around the world is what we in the US call +p+, at least the stuff in military service, because what we call +p+ was the original German spec. If your Luger short strokes, try hotter ammo.

I picked up a box of the white box LC M882 at the range yesterday for a $5 donation twoards new target frames. It was headstamped 96, and was plenty hot (not as hot as Ranger 127gr +P+), and quite accurate. I'm assuming the stuff ammoman will be getting is going to be newer production, but it should be nice hot stuff, right around +P pressure, maybe a little beyond. IIRC the newer M882 has been a little "cooler" the last few years, but I cant say for sure.

I'm waiting to seem some pictures of what ammoman is getting, but I plan on ordering at least 2K, if it appears to be new production LC--- I suppose it myight be an "X" load like XM193, but it should still be good stuff for practice.

I may sacrafice a round and see if the bullet is slealed, but the primers are for sure.
