« on: October 08, 2019, 08:57:03 PM »
Anybody knows something about this ammo?

"Normally made for Austrian police sales, we were able to acquire a small quantity of this interesting ammo for commercial sales here in the USA"

I saw that on SG’s list too.
I’m glad you are asking the question.
Now I’ll sit and watch......

I can only surmise that Austrian police aren't allowed JHP bullets, So something specifically for them?

It sounds similar to the old Winchester 100 gr. RNSP ammunition from the early 1970's.  We used it in our Model 59's when they were first issued, not because it was the best ammunition on the market, but solely because at the time it was the only ammunition on the market that would reliably feed through the first Model 59's.  S&W later made modifications to the pistols and magazines so they would feed just about anything.

Hope this helps.
