8mm Solothurn Projectile ID needed


#1

I have a 8x56R that has a projectile I am not familiar with in a Hungarian “ALLAMI Hadiánággyár” casing. The tip is NON magnetic but the rest of the projectile is and it seems to go down to the shoulder. The whole cartridge weighs in at 436 grains. Annealed brass casing.Tip has heavy patina and looks like it may be brass.

Joe: That’s the target practice or training version with a multi-part core that will break up upon impact. Can’t state the nomenclature of either this version or its Austrian counterpart, but both were produced. Jack
