Hi Tom
I took a look on your pictures? But they are a little bite dark (about the bullet)
Anyway, if it is olive green bullet it is a ordinary load
If it is blachened bullet, it is heavy bullet
But it looks to be olive green lacquered.

Jean-Pierre,

Thank you again, you have given me a lot of new treasures to seek, Tom.

I have a 7.5 MAS with a CN plated steel bullet (strongly magnetic). With black mouth sealant. Could it be an incendiary with the blue tip rubbed off? The headstamp is: “MR 31 1 D”.

hi falcon!
no it is an ordinary bullet.

It is my fault, I forgot to put it.

Ordinary:
brass (or green lacquered steel) case, tombac (or CN or copper or green laquered) bullet

and I have made another mistake :

Armor Piercing (only before WWII):
brass case, copper bullet, green tip

Nota:
what I call copper is red color
what I call tombac is yellow color
what I call CN is either CN or “maillechort” (white color but not CN)

So I suppose by “CN” you also mean CN plated steel. My bullet is CN plated steel.
