Paracord is going to stretch and has no where near the strength of Amsteel. Also Amsteel is a hollow "constrictable" cord which can be fed back through itself to make whoopies, on Paracord only the outer "cord" is hollow and not constrictable and has only 200# breaking strength. Check with marine shops to see if there is any available in your area. If you can't find it, we do carry it along with some of the other vendors here on HF.
