9mm PARA Round 2


#1

Can someone help me with these ones?

Thanks!

    • IVI 69, green tip. What does the green tip signify?
  1. Maker?

  1. Any known reason why DWM used this headstamp? Timeframe?

  1. Truncated cone, CNCS. Is it by Kynoch? For whom?

  1. Are Israeli blue and light blue tips the same subsonic loading?

  2. What loadings are known with this headstamp? I got ball and truncated cone hollow point.

  1. Is this a factory mistake over the usual annulus or does it have a mening?

Fernando - Your green-tipped IVI 9mm is a subsonic round for use with silencers. I believe these were aq contract for the U.S., and not for domestic use in Canada. Could be wrong about that, but I seem to recall they were part of the “Hushpuppy” project.

MxF is Hungarian, from the company Matravid

Thanks for your answer John! Seems I got myself a decent couple of rounds here.

Here’s a picture of the chinese round. Note the headstamp is L Y.


Still looking for an answer on this one!

  1. Are Israeli blue and light blue tips the same subsonic loading?

#4

Fernando - as far as I know, the blue tip, regardless of the shade of blue, is a subsonic round in Israeli 9mm ammunition.

Are those L Y Chine hollow point rounds sold in Argentina, or is that just a single that you happened upon?

John, as a hollow point, this is a single. But same 94 headstamp FMJ are/were quite common.
