9mm propelling cartridge for german made STEN SMG's


#1

Ive got some very interesting interrogation reports regarding german trial rifle grenades.
Very interesting is the interrogation report handling the 9mm propelling cartridge for german made ( or captured ) STEN SMG’s.
Major Hartmann was a leading developement officer in Hillersleben and he gave us a good description how this cartridge was look alike.
Here is the important part of the report.

They want a cartridge that couldt be easily hand loaded - It wouldt be simpler to use a simply folded blank.

Abybody has an unknown 9mm blank with neck and yellow wood bullet ??? :-)

Thanks!!! Great info.

I have never seen or heard of such a blank. There is a very long GFL crimped blank that is obviously hand loaded but it is dated decades after WWII. I hope someone out there has one.

Cheers,

Lew if you never seen or heard of one - the chance is low. But may be someone read this and remember the unknown round he has in a drawer :-).

Lets hope so. It would be great for one to show up. At least if one does, we will know what it is!

Cheers,

Out of the curious shape - it might be miss-ID as an movie blank.
