German 8mm caseless ammunition

Found recently at the Public Records Office in London, the file is from the Armament Research Establishment, file No DEFE 15/1557.

I hope these are of some use.

I’ve reduced the size of the files to make them easier to upload but if anyone would like the larger version please send me an e-mail.


Thank you for posting this great documentation Peter!
Might anyone have a photo of this actual cartridge?
