12.7 x 108 DShK commercial ammo?


I would like to know if there is any manufacturer who produce this caliber for the civilian market (i.e. ball rounds, not the usual military variations associated with this round). Maybe I’m wrong, PPU could offer “civilian” 12.7 DShK’s ?
Thanks in advance ☺🇦🇷


Yes, there is.Novosibirsk plant of low-voltage equipment (the same plant number 188)

Here is an example of a PPU loaded 12.7x108 cartridge:


What is the weight of the bullet?


700 grains or 45.36 grams. I think it’s a solid turned projectile but I don’t know for sure.


I would suggest that the brass solid


Actually Romania is also offering ball loads which seem to have soft iron cores.
There is a US company trading those. But they seem to deal normally with military ammo.


Thank you Heljak, is this factory load or a reload using PPU case ? 👍


Factory. I had an image of the box but I can’t find it at the moment.




Here’s the box image:
