I don't believe Venezuela was ever in NATO and that ammo is not NATO spec. I have shot alot of it when it was common and it is loaded hot compared to NATO spec so be aware. I was shooting it out of a 1912 steyr chilean mauser with no problems but some other bolt guns were getting the bolt jammed from too much pressure. worked fine in my semi-autos though.
I had several hundred rnds. once. The necks were too long and I had to pull every bullet, dump the powder and trim every case to correct length. I also had to reduce the powder charge by 15% to get it to function well in my 7.62 Garand.
