    This is the armour piercing used in the introduction of the 13,2x99 in 1939. It was not concidered so effective, and were soon phased out.

    This high explosive tracer projectile is designed by FN, but also produced by other countries and factories. When checking 4 cartridges I found in Sweden, they were all with the bunter marked BPD 40. BPD is Bombrini Parodi Delfino in Italy, and the production year is 1940.
    The cartridge is loaded with 3,2 grams of phlegmatic tetryl and the construction is regarded both safe and effective.

    The cartridge in the picture are from a demonstration board, so unloaded from factory or in country and are empty of explosive materials. If you have such a cartridge as this at home, do not take any chances but make a contact with the propper authorities.

    When the 13,2 mm sk ptr m/39 slsgr m/39 were concidered outdated, the igniter were removed and the ammunition continued as a ammunition for training.
    NOTE: It is only the igniter that is removed, the 3,2 grams of of phlegmatic tetryl is still within the projectile.


    This scanned example is secured, and all tetryl and gun powder is removed by a professional.

    The primer pocket is open, while the flash hole is not drilled. The projectile is a re-used AP m/40, and the black paint is covered with green paint.
    The case has a two band "knurl" in the middle of the case to identify it as a blind cartridge, together with the green paint on the projectile.

    The cartridge is manufactured by KE, KOCKUMS EMALJVERK in Ronneby, 1942.

    The grenade m/44 is maybe the last development in Europe for this calibre before the market were flooded with 12,7x99 ammunition after the end of WWII. This construction is developed and manufactured in Sweden.
    This projectile made a combination of the two earlier separate functions, AP and explosive with a add on of incendiary functionality. The only thing I find a bit strange as it is a air force ammunition, is that a tracer function was not included. A tracer projectile were in development in 1944, but were named slövn prj m/44, e.g. a tracer training projectile.

    The construction of the grenade are strongly influenced, and are mainly a scaled up copy of the 8x63 incendiary projectile. The form of the core and the setup internally see just minor differences, showing in three places:
    #1 The striker (Tändspets) found in the tip of the mantle giving the characteristic look of the tip, is not found in the 8x63 projectile.
    # 7 The filler (Täckmassa) at the rear of the core. The function is unknown.
    # 3 The explosive/incendiary combined compound.

    A great thanks to Blockhaj for the picture of the interior created by him for amkat.se
