New find - 6x49 Unified, HPT

6x49 Unified High Pressure Test, compared to 7.62x54R it was intended to replace.

Holy crap! Good find!

Now if I could find one stateside…

A compare/contrast between this and the US 6mm SAW from the 1970s is interesting, in that they’re similar ideas, but very different in the details of their execution.
