This thread began on https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/9-mm-luger-maxxtech-interesting-steel-case/27450 but for clarity I am starting this thread with a different subject. on the original thread Galgenberg posted the sectioned National AP round below. It is the first example I have seen showing the construction of this round.
I am curious about the reason for the base construction on this load. It looks to me like some parts of the base wound deform into the voids on firing. Any insights would be appreciated!
I have six National AP bullets in my collection. The four loads came from boxes and were production items. The other two bullets came from the factory in 1989 and apparently were never produced or sold commercially.
Any thoughts or insights into any of them would be appreciated. If someone had other variations of the National AP loads in 9x19, please post them.
