8 x 56R color combinations


#1

Does any one have, or can direct me to a resource which gives the color code for the 8 x 56R, I now have black tip bullet, two color green bullet tip. green annulus ring and a very poor source as what each stands for. Example the black tip one source says it AP and another calls it explosive? HELP Vic

Vic, are you talking about Hungarian ones?

Black = Spotter (or explosive as some would call it)
Green = Tracer
Blue = AP

Unfortunately I have no proper source for you.

Sorry, yes the Hungarian 8x56R

Vic, shake your black tip round. If it rattles it’s an HE-Observation load.
