Very interesting, Max, thanks for sharing. Do you have any additional information on the various 12.3mm/12.5mm loads I’ve seen mentioned? It seems like one or the other of these is a “multi-purpose” round that can be loaded with tear-gas/paint/traumatic/ball/AP rounds, while the other is a dedicated rubber bullet-only item. It also sounds like they come in various case lengths, to stop them from being used in the different chambers.

from what i know, all those abortions, based on 32 Ga shotgun shells, are all but gone now. All were developed during early 1990s for private security and/or police use; police had no interest in such crude weapons, private security followed the suit and preferred more conventional guns as well (shotguns or pistols in 9x17 Br)

just a note - it’s not my collection; in fact, only 18x45 T rounds are mine, all others were photo’d at local gun shop
personally i collect military handgun / rifle / mg ammunition, although i do not intend to join any cartridge collecting organization in near future (my collection is mostly for personal reference purposes)
