One of the newest military cartridges in the free world is the H&K 4.6x30 for the MP7 PDW. A tiny beauty and a remarkable weapons. Does any one have any of the other loads besides the black tip? I will have some of these up on Auctionarms this week. German, British and S. Korean military and police units are using this and the US has tested it for special forces use.
“The 4.6x30mm ammunition is loaded with pointed all-steel bullets with brass jacket. Bullet weight is 1.6 gram (25 grains) and the muzzle velocity is 725 m/s (ca. 2400 fps). Manufacturer claims the 100% penetration of the CRISAT body armor (1.6mm of Titanium plus 20 layers of Kevlar) at the distance of 200 meters. Other types of ammunition, including tracer, frangible, spoon-tip (rapid-tumbling for use against unarmored human targets), blank and trill (inert) also available for MP7A1; ammunition is currently manufactured in UK by BAE Systems / Radway Green plant.” MODERN FIREARMS.
