ID these Finn 7.62x39mm

Any idea what the last two cartridges on the right are?

Experimental practice cartridges. Finland made a whole row of them.

Is the far right projectile lead inside a sabot?

Is the middle projectile with no tip color a subsonic load with blue painted base maybe? Is the model number “K913”, or is that the collector’s inventory number?

They used lead and mild steel.

You may check that Finnish book I have introduced here some time ago.

found it:

iaaforum.org/forum2/viewtopic.ph … light=book

That looks like a great book, and it really covers my area of interest. I’m not sure how easy it would be to translate the info into English using a dictionary though. German, French, Spanish I can muddle through, but Finnish might be tough!

Well, most Finns are good english speakers. So find one. :)

It’s K413 AP bullet

Thank you Hammer. I was wondering where you were! You take nice pictures, I had to share them.

How is the “K413” AP marked for identification?

if I remember right this one should have the head stamp “LAPUA 90”, it is experimental and had no makrings. The projectile is magnetic (what regular Finnish M43s are not)

No markings, hst is “LAPUA 89”.
