Recently this round turned up in Spain and is reportedly a new product from IVI.
Does anyone know anything about this round. Is it available? What is it called? Sure would like to locate a box!!! I have no idea what the headstamp is. I’d guess it is a shortrange load.
I tried to look it up by going on the IVI website and no luck. As I searched I found the following:
[quote]In 1976 Industries Valcartier Inc. bought out CIL’s commercial cartridge production. This granted them the rights to CIL’s popular Dominion, Imperial and Canuck commercial ammunition brands.

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems-Canada Inc. was formed as a result of two purchases: the first, in 1980, Industries Valcartier Inc. (IVI), a small caliber ammunition plant; and the second, in 1986, Canadian Arsenals Ltd. (CAL), a large caliber ammunition facility with two plants. Both IVI and CAL were built during World War II and operated by the Canadian government as crown corporations for many years prior to being sold to the private sector. Since these two acquisitions in the 1980s, there has been considerable streamlining, reorganization and modernization to maintain highly effective ammunition facilities.
In 2001, the company acquired Expro Chemical Products in Valleyfield known now as General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems-Canada Valleyfield Inc. This acquisition has strengthened the company’s position as a key member of the ammunition industrial base by providing the knowledge and technology of one of only two extruded propellant manufacturers in North America.
Finally found the following:
I didn’t even know that IVI was part of GD and had been for 30 years! Most of you guys probably already know this but new to me so decided to share for the other guys who are also out of touch!
After all that, I can’t find this round on the Simunition website so am not even sure it is by Simunition!!!
It appears that the company, IVI, no longer exists, even as a product name and hasn’t for some time. When did IVI disappear???
Any help or thoughts appreciated.
