8,5 mm european cartridges (338" ?)


#1

I would like to have some info about the early european 8,5 mm cartridges ( 338" bullet diam ???)

I assume that there should have been some target rounds with this bullet diam.I don’t think there are many of 8,5 mm european cartridges both obsolete ( 8,5 x 42R / 46 R ) or modern ( 8,5 x 63 / R )

Was .338" the true bullet diameter?
