DM111 & M80 ammo

I am still trying to get an understanding of all the different ammo designations. Is DM111 the same as M80? This is described as 90's German DAG 147gr. and has a copper/nickle/manganese jacket for hardness, is that going to be more abrasive? Any help would be appreciated.

My understanding is that it is the German equivalent of M80 ball.

Good Luck

Exclamation Bullet Jacket

It might be the German NATO equvalent to USGI M80 Ball, but M80 Ball has a mild steel jacketed bullet.

Don't worry about excessive barrel wear with either if you're not shooting a benchrest gun
