Good afternoon. Could use some help please.
Was sent a few of these tungsten core armor piercing projectiles that weigh in the neighborhood of 152 grains. They are in the shape/design of the M993 (AP8) made by NAMMO (FFV/CG). But the M993 are 126 grains.
The projectiles in question are on the left, next to an unfinished M993 section. It has a gliding metal jacket that is notched to fit the larger core. Definitely tungsten in a aluminum pusher cup and with remnants of a black tip. The tungsten has a more of a silvery rough finish. Projectiles do have faint pull marks but don’t lineup with any of the 7.62 (or 30.06 either) that are in my collection.
Does anyone know of the manufacturer who made these and/ or maybe for what?
Thanks for any help.
