I know that most of the collectors who are interested in oddball 9mm cartridges have come across the one with the little pointed aluminum tip inside a typical copper HP bullet, and which is often labeled as a “Van Hee”. I picked one up in St Louis, and I also picked up a couple great posters with 9mm sections done by Reinhold Peschke.
On the poster there is this one which is labeled as “MEN versuch ca 1977” (which I take to mean MEN experimental from 1977), and the cartridge I have that is labeled as Van Hee does have a MEN headstamp. So these are the same I assume?
Is this round considered a penetrator? Was Van Hee a designer at MEN? I’ve heard his name thrown around before concerning this projectile, and also some other experimental rocket.
