Odd 8mm RN bullet (8mm Guedes/Kropatschek)


Found this bullet on a random 8mm that I got with some loose ammo. I have a similar round that has different construction and powder. Is this type of bullet construction normal?


Portuguese 8mm Guedes/Kropatschek.



Thanks for the ID, I figured that since there was few sealed packs of that with the loose rounds. I was wondering more about the intricacy of the bullet construction. Seems like a lot for just a FMJ bullet. Since the others with similar headstamps were more conventional at the base.
