PLA plus strength and durability?

You guys might have seen this on Facebook but Iím very interested in these drum mags. Anyone have experience with PLA plus?

I've been considering using PLA+ on some projects, but concerned that it doesn't offer much more heat resistance over regular PLA. At least not nearly as much as PETG, to make me want to switch.

But I did just order some PLA+ today, so I'll give a report once I've used it a bit.

Those drum Mags are pretty sweet, BTW

Keep in mind that PLA is fairly brittle, so a well placed shot or two will probably give you a bad day.

Have you guys tried ASA? I think it works really well for parts like this.

On Facebook he said it takes shots just fine but said if you dropped it on gun you might break something. Looking around online last night it seems pla plus has a bit more flexibility than regular pla.
