Hi im new and have some HP L7A1 ball ammo originally made for open bolt submachine guns (1992 surplus). A few rounds made it into the USA but its loaded pretty hot, roughly 124gr [email protected]+fps. Very few pistols will handle this round and even the British stopped using it in their SMGs. It is supposed to be hotter than the UZI ammo for carbines.

Has anyone used the L7A1 124gr FMJ ammo in their 995 or 995ts?

Im a bit nervous about using it and Hi Point's website says +P is ok but no mention of +P+ ammo. Its nice brass ammo and usually cheap at the guns shows at about $10 for 50 rounds. Primers are pretty hard too.

Thanks

No, its actually German ammo made for the British during the early 1990s. The company no longer makes small arms ammo but make lots of anti tank stuff and large shells. Ive checked it out with Google and most opinions are it is way too hot for almost any pistol. The Brits used it in SMGs ONLY and under adverse conditions like very cold weather. The primers are harder for open bolt weapons.

+P+ ammo is pretty hot and this is the hottest of the bunch.
