Two ''phase-shift equivalent'' local NN potentials with different parametrizations, Reid93 and NijmII, which were found to give nearly identical results for the triton by Friar et al., are shown to yield remarkably similar results for Li6 and N14 in a (0+2)Latin small letter h with strokeΩ no-core space shell-model calculation. The results are compared with those for the widely used Hamada-Johnson hard-core and the original Reid soft-core potentials, which have larger deuteron D-state percentages. The strong correlation between the tensor strength and the nuclear binding energy is confirmed. However, many nuclear structure properties seem to be rather insensitive to the details of the NN potential and, therefore, cannot be used to test various NN potentials.
