Just couple of photos for your viewing pleasure ;)


top to bottom: SP-5 sniper ball, SP-6 AP, PAB-9 AP and SPP ‘sniper, improved penetration’


bullets and respective cores, PAB-9 left, SP-6 right


#2

Thanks Max - how come the SPP is so much shorter than the others? Is it lighter, or does it have a tungsten core?


#3

It is shorter because the steel core is only half the length (or less actually) of the SP-6 and PAB-9. The rest is lead and sowith the projectile is shorter.


#4

In general SPP bullet is same to SP5 but with open steel core.
