I haven't, but I've fed mine everything I could find, and have only had a couple FTF's (possible "hard primer") from a box of Monarch steel case.
Let us know - I'll bet it will eat it right up.

NATO rounds are charged with a little more powder for higher pressures, and since they're surplus rounds I'm not surprised about a little extra dirtiness. Essentially, I would treat NATO rounds like +P rounds, occasional use isn't really a bad thing. Your average +P round is at 36,000 PSI while NATO is at 36,500 PSI, compared to your standard 9mm Luger round at 35,000 PSI it may not be much of a noticeable difference as far as felt recoil goes.

The Winchester version is not a speed demon by any means.
From Cheaper Than Dirt's site.

Manufacturer: Winchester Q4318
Item: 3-0308862
UPC: 50020892212218

Winchester brings you a 9mm Parabellum (9x19mm) round loaded to the same specs as NATO military ammo with a 124 Grain Full Metal Jacket bullet at 1140 fps. This is the perfect load to feed a surplus military pistol!

Muzzle Velocity: 1140 fps
Muzzle Energy: 358 ft/lbs
50 Yard Velocity: 1050 fps
50 Yard Energy: 303 ft/lbs
Uses: Target Shooting, Training, Practice

Granted, Europe NATO ammo may be loaded to higher pressures.
