Hi JP,

Yes, as Yuri says, some great Schirnecker rounds here. However the first round is a 5mm ARES round from the USA (gun system designed by Gene Stoner and a contender in the ACR program).

There were 2 case lengths (44 and 54 mm) with many combinations of case materials (aluminum was the first). And, by the way, were also made in .50 cal.

regards,
Paul
