7.5 Swedish Revolver


#1

Hello again, everybody! The Swedish Model 1887 Revolver remained in service for quite a few years. Were the cartridges ever loaded with FMJ bullets? I have seen paper patched lead and heavily waxed lead, but no FMJ. Thank you. Cheers!

According to Erlmeier-Brandt, page 84 (Item Number 56), the 7.5 mm Nagant was loaded in FMJ but not for military use. Apparantly for military use it was only loaded with a paper-patched lead bullet, but commercially, it was also offered with a plain lead bullet (NOT paper-patched).
