ID for FN Short Range in .308

Hi guys,

I need some help to identify the following maybe experimental short range bullet by FN.

bullet mass: 2,12 g / 32,7 gr
lenght without fingers: 19,6 mm
lenght with fingers: 26,0 mm
bullet diameter: 7,80 mm

Could someone gives informations about year of production, muzzle velocity, maximum range and what is the function of the 4 fingers?

Best regards

Chris

Maximum range 400m. Production round. The one without the wings is 1000m, so the wings reduce the flight. The one’s I have with date are from the end ofthe sixties, early seventies. Thanks, Jan

Hi Jan,

thanks a lot for the details!
Do you maybe have a official data sheet of this cartridge?

Best regards

Chris

May be I have seen ones, but I’m not sure about that, but I’ve seen boxes of the 400m and 1000m. Actually the first ctg of these I had came out of these boxes. I unloaded 1of each to see the difference. This was 30 years ago I think. Jan
