11mm Pin fire
The 7,62x54R is one of the newest calibres in the Swedish defence and already phased out. The ammunition is used in KSP95, which is a Soviet Kalashnikov PKT machine-gun that we got in the deal with the Pbv 401 and Pbv 501 delivered to Sweden starting in 1997, and then phased out again in 2010.
The ammunition is about equal in performance to the 7,62x51.
Sweden was offered to buy ammunition together with the Soviet PKT, but rejected the deal. The original Soviet bloc ammunition's primers contain mercury. Mercury is not unusual to be used in the east bloc, but unhealthy, so all ammunition used in Sweden is of local production. The ammunition has been made in Vanäsverken, Sweden since 1995.
