French 12 caliber APs


#1

Recently I was able to acquire a pair of sectioned French 12 caliber AP loadings (no cases). One with brass subcaliber penetrator and one with steel sub caliber penetrator.

Maybe somebody can say who has developed them? Are they in service?


Thank you!

It looks like something VBR in Belgium might do (especially the lower photo showing 2-part projectile), but their website doesn’t show any 12ga item. It also brings SIB to mind since they used to load 12ga stuff and also load pistol-caliber brass & copper AP loads. It looks a little too advanced and too new for SIB though.
