Describe “Stannic-stained.” I have seen the phrase used sometimes with ammo, but have never really been sure of what it meant, which is why I suggested a picture. The only thing I know about “stannic” is that it refers to an alloy of silver and lead, or sometimes something that contains tin.

I am not as well-versed, however, in this sort of technical vocabulary, as I should be, unfortunately. My interest in ammunition has always run to the historical aspects, rather than the “tech” of it all.

The headings as translated on that chart are hilarious. I tried correcting some of them, but it didn’t work, even though clicking on the word there now offers a block in which to provide a
better translation.

FWIW
kobberbelagt messing = copper plated brass
kobbernikkelbelagt messing =cupronickel coated brass

Primarily made for and used in the Kongsberg m/1914 pistol. Saw use in imported .45 handguns and SMGs as well.

“kule” being translated to “cool” is a new one… :-) It can mean both “ball/sphere”, “bullet” and “cool”, as in rad, awesome, what have you…

“kjerne” means core (also as in nuclear core), but Google opting for that meaning instead of core is a bit odd to me.

Hi John,

Many Many Thanks For Helping Me. Sorry it took the next day to get back to you as i can only send e-mails from my office computer.

I hope the picture i sent turned out ok? That was my first go around with Photobucket.

What i meant by stannic stain? That term i learned from Mr John Scott. That is were that round came from. Obviously i did’nt take very good notes about it. I was incorrect on my label. I have now learned that gray finish is nickel, applied by Raufoss. My stannic meaning would be that gray tint that was applied to the “Tin Can” 30-06 Bullet.

Take Care, Joe
