FN 8mm APIT?


Did FN ever make a legitimate 8mm cartridge in APIT with a red / silver tip or would these be a “gunshow load” ? The one I have seen is headstamped FN 69:


I saw those rounds on the auction site. They would be very nice rounds it they were authentic. I have never seen or heard of a 7.9x57mm 1969 APIT loading from FN. (They may exist but they are unknown to me for whatever that is worth.).

There IS a fairly common 1969 Tracer loading from FN
