Hello Treshkin,
Many thanks for sharing these pictures.
About the top one with the flat bullet, how would that ‘ballisticaly’ work??
To me, I know nothing about ballistics, it looks like it might go anywere but straight.

Hi, Rene,
as you know, I am not a hunter:)
I don’t know how this bullet work, but I think it has not bad ballistics as French blondo.
It was developed for typical “shotshell” distances - up to 60 meters, in contrast to bullets Slon Gold-R and Slon Stil-R, which was developed for the distances up to 150 m (according to the manufacturer data)

Are these “Hunting” cartridges ( ie, Bear, Moose, etc) or are they “Police Door Busters” (Breaching) Cartridges??? From the looks of the Projectiles, they look more like Door Busters…

IN either case, they would suit admirably for Thick Ukrainian Wooden (Solid) Doors…

What is a complete translation of the Box labels???

These cartridges are Hunting. And they are for sale in common Hunting shops in Ukraine. Really it hard to find them, because they are not popular because of high price and limit production.

Ukrainian Police Door busters looks like usual 12 ga cartridges, but loaded with something like metall dust. I will try to find such cartridges and make some pictures later. I need some time to find them in my drawers.

The translation of the boxes is:

ПАТРОНЫ ПУЛЕВЫЕ - Ball cartridges
ПАТРОНЫ ОХОТНИЧЬИ - Hunting cartridges

Только для штуцеров или стволов с наcадкой “парадокс” - Only for Carbines with rifled barels or for smoothbore weapons with paradox choke tubes

Использовать в полуавтоматическом оружии запрещается - Forbiden for use in semi-automatic weapons
