7,62 NATO loaded with .30 caliber API and INCD bullets


#1

It says 220,000 cartridges were loaded, and “several thousands” were spent in trials. So there must be several other thousands left for the collectors…

Now it should be assumed that API was silver tip and Incendiary was blue tip, but some NATO specialist had to confirm that.

Wasn’t there a guy here in the forum asking for 7,62 mm API bullets… ?

(From AD-A022 357, EVALUATION OF 7.62 MM CARTRIDGES ASSEMBLED WITH CALIBER .30 API AND INCENDIARY BULLETS, Vernon E. Shisler, Frankford Arsenal, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, July 1975)

Well, that’s true, but maybe someone is interested in reading the report for himself.
