On “municion.org”, there is a picture with a 7,92*95 patrone with a PZ ball, headstamp is: P 10a (eagle) WaA700 39
All loadings of PZ ball on 7,9257 case are known with the headstamp:
eej S 6 42
So my question is, why these loadings with PZ patrone are older that the ones producted by eej?[/quote]
Laurent, a fellow collector I know very well would say „I don’t like this cartridge“.
Rheinmetall-Borsig in Berlin became from HWA an order to load 20 000 rounds with 2.8 g powder with the bullets and cases delivered by them for a field test.
The reason to develop this bullet was to increase the penetration of the SmK without using any lead.
The 13mm bullet was already accepted and was probably the example for this 7,9 bullet. Cartridges with this bullet (eej S* 6 42) are the only known production.
At these days the PZB were already build true Rifle Grenades Launchers.
