7.65 x 54 mm Mauser Extended Case Shot by FM"FLB"


#1

“Survival” shot loads were only shown as “in preparation” in some FM “FLB” commercial catalogs but never actually introduced.
All of these had been considered experimentals until last year when some commercial boxes of number 3 were found.

    • Wax seal. Four stab primer crimp. Note broken bunter (upper part of number “6” is missing):
    • Six lobe mouth crimp. Four stab primer crimp. Same broken bunter.
    • Three lobe waxed mouth crimp. Four stab primer crimp. Purple annulus. Same broken bunter.
    • Three lobe green painted mouth crimp. Four stab primer crimp. Purple annulus. Same broken bunter.
    • Three lobe red painted mouth crimp. Four stab primer crimp. Dark purple annulus. Original unbroken bunter.

Fede knows this, but for some that don’t, there was a 9mm Para shot round too, made from .38 Special cases, with a wax-like mouth sealant. They used the .38 Special case to get a long enough brass case to hold as meaningful amount of small shot pellets as they practically-speaking could.

I am pretty sure their are 7.62 x 51 mm versions as well, and .45 auto, although the latter were certainly not just experimental. They are found in 50-round boxes on occasion.
