7.92mm Military?


#1

Hi,

I picked this one up recently. It is a 7.92mm as is self-evident from the photo.

It has a black wooden bullet which has a case mouth seal of wax. Actually, it looks like the entire bullet is wax coated. You can see the wax in the photo.

Was this a military blank and if so when were these manufactured?

Any information is appreciated.

Thanks.

Not military. Some were loaded in 1965 for Bapty & Company for film work - and another batch in 1966. I think if you check carefully, the colour of the waxed wood bullets is a dark blue. The wood bullets are hollow & the Kynoch Loading Card for the 1966 batch states 28 grains of Revolver Neonite as propellant.
