Very interesting to see the 95gr “High Performance” 9x19 load on the last page. Looks like a typical “Arcane” style clone, with bullet material being listed as copper alloy. Wonder if it is Beryllium-copper, and wonder why they need it given that they already produce the design borrowed from Anthena with the exposed steel core tip?

Also interesting to see the .408 Chey-Tac as a production cartridge from them.

Their .408 was advertised in 2012 already.

BTW, their pyroctechnics are from a German company which set up a production line in the UAE.

Some of the photos don’t match the round though…

Yes, I see the schematic for the solid 5.56 and the High Performance Arcane-style 9mm both show the wrong cartridge, and both appear to be 9x19 ball schematics. They also show a red tip on the schematic for the .408, and there is no red tip on the actual photo rd. The data in the charts below the schematic appears to be correct though.
