Hi,

Here are some just of the 9x90. There were also a few examples of steel cases made, but they are exceedingly rare.


Regards,

Hi All,
What were the dimensions of the 9x90, 9x85 and 9x77 MEN cartridges?
In the link to the old forum, the 9 x 90 and 9 x 77 seem to have a larger base\rim.

Thanks!

I am looking for a lot more information on the 9x85 MEN. Most of the information I have come across on the internet is on THIS page. I am mostly concerned about performance. Could this cartridge hold its own against a .375 cheytac? Please let the Asperger within you out and tell me as much as possible. Remember, you are limited to 60k characters.

JATO,

Take a look at an article from Tactical Shooter on the 9x90mm MEN here:

Not exactly what you wanted but it may give you some more insight on the subject.
