    *About the projectiles material; the jacket was changed 1980 from tombac plated steel to solid tombac. There are two reasons for changing the jackets material. Firstly, the quality in production of the tombac jacket is higher than the quality of the steel jacket. That leads to a better precision for the ammunition. But the main reason for the change is that the tombac jacked bullet wears less on the barrel of the gun. The drawback is a higher price of the ammunition. The velocity figures differs quite much depending of what weapon is used:
    AK 4 gives ca 790 mps v0
    KSP 58 gives 830 mps v0
    PSG 90 gives 900 mps v0

    This is a grenade cartridge for rifle smoke grenade 1 or the AK4. The grenade is put over the barrels end. Maximum range of the grenade is ca 300 meters and the smoking time is ca 50 seconds. The cartridges neck has a rose petal closure and is sealed. The grenade cartridge does not normally cycle the rifle, so reloading has to be done by hand.

    This is the blank ammunition for PSG90. PSG90 has no blank firing device, so the blank cartridge is without the normal bullet of wood. When using blank ammunition in PSG90 you use a special magazine that's shortened inside to not accept normal ammunition. Risk range for the ammunition is 10 meters. The cartridge shown here is made 1992, which is said to be the first year of production for the Swedish defense. It is made by Bakelittfabrikken, Norway

    The projectile has a hard metal core that gives the ammunition a very good penetration on hard targets. Conventional AP ammunition uses hard steel as a penetrator. The Tungsten material has a much higher density, which makes the penetrator much heavier than a steel penetrator of the same size. The projectile penetrates at least 15 mm steel at 300 meters or 20 mm of steel at 100 meters.
    The cartridge on the picture is stamped as made 1984. That is a truth with modification. The case is made then, but the ammunition is built 1987.

    This is the Swedish defenses ammunition for PSG 90. It will increase the range from 800 meters to 1000 meters, one shot, one kill. The projectile is sub caliber and has a diameter of 4,81 mm. It’s kept in a sabot made of plastic and aluminum that releases from the projectile after it left the barrel.
    The ammunition is made in USA by Winchester, and is a development of Winchesters SLAP (Sabot light armor piercing) ammunition. The development is much around the sabot to make the ammunition more accurate. 1998 Winchester got a order for one million rounds.
    I would like to give a big thanks to Morten Støen for these pictures and for good additional information!

    This cartridge is used by a weapon technician to test if a weapon is fully healthy. The pressure of this cartridge is much higher than a standard cartridge, and an unhealthy weapon will fail the test. Please observe, do NOT use this cartridge yourself to test a weapon, it can cause severe injury

    I think this cartridge is made by: Imperial Ammunition Div. of Valcartier Industries in Quebec, Canada
    This ammunition has a light weight plastic bullet for chort range training. It is ballistically good up to 100 meters with a maximum range of 600 meters. Perfect for short range training.

    This is a early, maybe the first year producton inert rounds in this caliber. It is produced in 1957 at the Karlsborg factory. The groves in the case is not pressed as usual, it is turned out of the goods instead.

    This is an early experimental 7,62x51 blank ammunition with a plastic projectile. The projectile have the feel and look of the plastic in the 9x19 blank ammunition.

    The 7,62x51 incendiary were to be introduced in the 80th but was withdrawn in the last moment. The cartridge is to be found in the systematic catalog Ammunitionskatalog Systematisk förteckning 1988 M7779-900140 but fell on the goal line before it was fully accepted. When the new AMKAT catalog were on submission of comment,  the incendiary projectile was considered to violate the Haag 1899 convention when making a narrow judgment as the projectile would easily be deformed when hitting a human body.  The intention with the projectile were of cause to destroy equipment,  not for human targets. The main system the ammunition were intended for were the KSP's and PSG90 sniper rifle. The efficiency of the projectile is unknown to me, but I know that the developers of the PSG90 were very amused by using it to put the targets a flame. 
    The open space of incendiary ammunition were later on closed by the introduction of the 12,7x99 incendiary ammunition together with the AG90, a system truly used against materials only.
    I have not found any source of manufacture of the cartridge yet, but it is believed to be developed and manufactured outside of Sweden.  All remaining ammunition not used up in the trials is said to of been destroyed in the end of the 80th.
    This fantastic background information comes from Johan K Persson, earlier involved in the development of the PSG90 system, with added facts and assumptions from other sources.

    This AP cartridge has a black ring on the projectile instead of the normal black tip. The normal AP generates a higher pressure than a standard cartridge, while this AP ammunition is loaded to the same pressure as a standard cartridge. This item is produced by Karlsborg ammunitionsfabrik in 2005.

    The dim/IR tracer is totally invisible to the naked eye. Can only be seen with Night Vision Devices (NVD's) giving
    the user clear advantages as a stealth fighter at night. Instant ignition for short combat distances.

    Sweden has of lately been importing ammunition from abroad, and here I have a German round produced by MEN in 2018.
    The ammunition is of "B" specification so the projectile is led free and the cartridge is of a more environmental friendly design.

    This Long Range ammunition is intended mainly for the sniper rifle PSG90 System, but can be fired in any other 7,62x51 weapon. The full designation is 7,62 MM SK PTR 10 PRICK LÅNGHÅLL.
    Amkat of 2014 gives the projectile weight as 10,5 gram, and the NAMMO catalog of 2014 edition 4 (7.62 mm 51 Ball 11 Long Range) as 10,9 gram (160 grain).
    The same states a V0 at 805 m/s. The high projectile weight of 10,9 gram, copmared with a normap PRJ of 9,5 gram, gives a increase of 50% energy at 800 meters. The accurecy is stated as 1MOA and a penetration of 3.5 mm NATO plate at 550 meters.
    This cartridge is produced by Karlsborgs ammunition fabrik in 2013.
