6.35x48mm


#1

What is the main differences between the 2 following cartridges.
Both are 6.35x48mm experimentals but have different designations.
FA-T116 and FA-T110, both have same weight projectile and velocity.
Why the different designation? And what are the designations for the duplex vaiations?

The FAT116 Simplex uses a conventional GM bullet. The FAT110 Simplex has a copper plated steel bullet.

The duplex loads are FAT115 for the conventional bullets and FAT125 for copper plated steel bullets. They will have green-tipped bullets.

There are also 52mm Simplex and Duplex cartridges, the FAT124 and FAT127.

These are all different than the Project SALVO Cal 25 For Light Rifle, 7.62mm cased cartridges.

I hope I got all that correct.

I thought that FA-T110 was the name of the case

That designation is for the loaded cartridge type. Components all have their own designations.

Additionally, you will occasionally find examples from the early days of an experimental round where a Laboratory/Arsenal/Armory person assembled a cartridge outside the specs, just to see what would happen, but didn’t record anything.

It makes the collecting of wildcats a simple pleasure. :) :)
