Does anyone have any information about the bullet above?
I searching on the internet a lot but found nothing so far. I picked it up as an EOD export and disposed of this from a former Soviet mountain shooting range in Hungary 1992.
Calibre: ~14 mm
Total lenght: 48,5mm

Base ø: 13,90 mm
Rotating band ø: 14,05 / 14,40 mm
Rotating band: four pcs lead (1st: 1,7 mm, 2nd: 2,5mm, 3rd: 1,7mm 4th: 2,2mm thick)
Thr barrel which shoot this projectile have a rifling: 8 grooves 1,5 mm wide (ø14,4 mm) and 8 lands 4 mm wide (ø14,05 mm)
It has a nose fuze with some basic centrifugal safety elements as you can be seen in the pictures.
Had two types of explosive materials. One in the small primer in the fuze, and some plastic A-IX-2 hexogen explosive in a thick metal tube which had 8,7mm diameter x 20mm long. The projectile has a hard plastic end cup which secured with some lacquer and holds the explosive tube in place.
