German Surplus Ammo ?

I've seen some threads on surplus ammo, but not gotten a real feel for the German surplus ammo. This is what I'm looking at:

German Surplus in pack. 1990s production, full metal jacket boattail bullet, 147-grain. Brass-cased. Berdan-primed, with lead-less primer. Non-corrosive, non-reloadable, encapsulated DMIII bullet.

Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

What I have seen of the German ammo, the bullet attracts a magnet. Just make sure this is OK to shoot at your range. My range does not allow it.

German Surplus Ammo

Does anyone know how the German MEN ammo compares to the DAG ammo? Mahalos in advance.

Depends on what your barrel likes, but it's probably real good if you can find any. MEN always shot good for me, a little on the hot side but not excessively.

DAG or MEN makes little difference as to quality of the ammo itself. Right now DAG is the more readily available but I wouldn't hesitate on MEN either(at the right price, DAG is pretty reasonable now!).
