Very interesting loading: CN-jacketed bullet which has the second aluminium conical core (in the bullet base). The cyrillic hs indicate Petrograd Ctd Plant, 1914 - “14 P”. Any ideas…? Weight 10,2g (158grs), bbt OAL 32,8 mm.

Sorry, how I can add a photo?

Costas, do you know the exact weight of the projectile?
Is the cone in the base hollow or solid?
