I can't report on accuracy as I didn't shoot any at paper. When I wasn't busy jerking the trigger, though, it was easily capable of hitting 2 liter pop bottles at 25 yards with me shooting offhand.

This ammo is a 124 gr. JSP running around 1200 fps, which is close to NATO spec, though it's not ball ammo, being JSP and all. It actually looks like FMJ with the rounded part of the nose cut off. The jacket runs all the way up to where the flat lead nose of it starts, with the entire flat portion being exposed lead. The ammo itself was very clean (one would hope so, being sealed in battle packs) and comes in 25 round boxes within the battle pack (10 boxes, 250 rounds per BP). The ammo is Berdan primed, for those who are wondering.

I only fired 175 rounds of the 250 I took with me. I should warn that my CZ-75B has some issues with pre-mature slide lock, which I've traced back to my thumb riding up and bumping the slide lock lever. I did get more of those than I am accustomed to (usually shoot 115 gr. S&B ammo), but again, thumb riding up. I know it is my fault as they do not happen when I am shooting left-handed, where my thumb cannot ride up. Out of 175 rounds, I had 2 rounds nose-dive. I do not recall if both were from teh same magazine or not, but that's not bad for blasting ammo, IMHO. Not bad ammo, and I think I will go ahead and shoot up all I have left. I don't know if I'll buy more, will probably try some Hotshot and/or Igman before I do.
