Can anyone give me all the details about the 10 x 23T Russian blank and trauma cartridges produced for use in the Makarov “Service Traumatic Pistol MP-471?” I am not confusing this with the Russian 10 x 32T cartridges, of which I have loaded and inert specimens.
I suspect that the “trauma” cartridge is a rubber ball. However, I could use a complete description of any loads made in this caliber, including case material, overall cartridge length, head, base and outside mouth diameter (which I suspect are about the same as the 10 x 32T, primer type and cup material, colored seals if any, and type of “projectile” for each. If the “projectile” is a pre-split plastic cap at the case mouth, in the case of blanks, if made, and possibly gas cartridges, the color(s) would be appreciated as well.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ONLY LOAD FOR THIS CALIBER IS THE RUBBER-BALL LOAD, JUDGING FROM THE EXACT WORDING OF THE INFORMATION ON THE GUN. The gun is based on the Makarov Models IZH-79 Gas Pistol and IZH-79-9T Traumatic Pistol. There may be no blank or gas loadings for it since it does shoot a projectile of some sort - it seem a 10.2m/m rubber ball.
I have never seen this round and would not know it except for having literature on the pistol that uses them.
I will appreciate any help that can be given, including pictures of rounds, if available.
