9 mm Glisenti flash holes


#1

I pulled the bullet from this 9 mm Glisenti round,found on a battlefiled on the Eastern Italian Alps.It is headstamped LBC M17,standard bullet.

Are these off-centered flash holes common on 9 mm Glisenti?

Pivi,

Can’t answer your question, but do you think such a misalignment would compromise ignition? Are the flash holes installed totally separate from the primer pocket forming or is the pocket also out of whack?

Thanks,
Dave

The primer is perfectly centered,but I have no way to pull off the primer and take a close look to the primer pocket and anvil.
