13,2 mm Hotchkiss bullets


#1

Hi,

I need a opinion about 13,2 mm Hotchkiss type bullets from drawing and photo.

  1. German drawing (beutegeschoss Polen / maybe FR or UK bullet)
    62 mm - steel core - very tiny groove - 1 mm [standard PL - ~2,5 mm)
    Clipboard01

  2. Two bullets without groove (maybe FR made standard ?)
    62,13 mm - steel core, or steel tungsten core
    62,04 mm - -//- tracer

Polish types of bullets always longest - 63, 63,3 mm standard based on FR and UK types, experiments with 13,2 the same - longest.

I’m especially interested for good drawings FR and UK 13,2 mm. I need a other good image a incendiary or smoke 13,2 mm as in German drawing:

Greetings
PM
