What could be the reason for this recess in the neck? Has anybody a fired case?
13x94SR necked down to 7.92mm (kind of a wild cat)
The Germans reversed the 8-13 (x94) to come up with the 318 design designation (I think that’s what I remember reading just recently)
Is the shoulder an accident or on purpose?
Reminded me of the 7mm Vom Hofe SE.
Was that an official wartime experimentation? What fired this round?
[quote=“sksvlad”]Was that an official wartime experimentation? What fired this round?[/quote]It was an ‘official’ cartridge fired by several AT rifles, among them the PzB 39.
And not to forget the MG 141.
Wow! A machinegun for that round? Each belt of ammunition must have been supplied with a new barrel!
As to the original question, perhaps the damage to the shoulder was from restraining the case while pulling the bullet from the live round?
