Anyone know if its safe to fire NATO M882 9mm in the P99?

The P99 is the side arm of the German Army, so I would think that it was designed with NATO ammo in mind.

NATO M882 9mm ball load is a 124 grain fmj at 1290fps from a 5 in barrel. Most commercial 124's are around 1150fps.
I would considered the M882 ball a +P load.

I thought the German army was using the HK USP now?

If I'm not mistaken the H&K USP was adopted by the German federal police forces recently, however the German military has kept the P99 as well as the Polish Army.
