I’m doing some research on Polte 9mmP cantridges and would appreciate help from the Forum members.
If you have a Polte P08 cartridge (headstamp P * (lot) (year) dated from 1930 through 1939 that weighs 180gr (11.66g) or less, please let me know, either by email, or PM or a posting here. The information I’d appreciate is:
–Lot & year on the hst.
–Overall weight of the cartridge (grains or grams)
–Description of the bullet
–Any other distinctive characteristics of the load
I have a black bullet mE load in a P * 22 38 case and one has been reported in a 23 39 case. I think these are just older cases that got mixed with the 1940 production of mE bullets.
All help is appreciated. Even if you have just a single Polte 9mm, it may be the one I need to know about.
Thanks for the help…
