Is this stuff as reliable through a PS90 and FN ammunition?

I also shot some through my PS90 a couple of weeks ago, it worked fine. They tend to be a little dirtier but they do function.

It works. Probably good ammo overall.
I wouldn't put it in the same class as some of the other loads for defense though.

It's a FMJ, definitely not for defense. It's not even good for blowing up water bottles. Punching holes yes, doing damage no.

The velocity is a lot slower than the FN boxed stuff for the same bullet weight.

I actually get fluctuations batch to batch, cold/hot weather, on the FPS. Sometimes ss197 is hotter, sometimes AE is. They are both around 1600-1700fps.

The penetration on the FMJ is surprising.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.
