    The blue tip tells that it is intended only for peace time training. It is of lower quality than wartime ammunition.

    The green tip ammunition is "not for automatic weapons". It is of low quality in manufacture and mechanical quality. The green tip is the early marking of the projectile. Later the colour was switched for dark blue. The cartridge is probably made 1939, it is only from that year I found boxes with this colour marking.

    The blue tip ammunition is "only for peace time use". It is of low quality in manufacture and mechanical quality. The dark blue tip is the later marking of the projectile, the earlier marking was green. The cartridge is made ca 1940-45.

    This is a unknown cartridge to me. It is a early experimental round were the case is made 1917 by Marieberg ammunition factory (That does not mean that this round is manufactured that year) It has a blackened projectile. If that is the materials original colour or if it is coloured in that way is unknown to me. It is either a trial smoke trace round, or simply a projectile with a new kind of material in the jacket.

    Projectile m/41 was fist made for sniper rifle m/41, but it soon replaced projectile m/94 as the standard projectile. The form of the m/41 gives much better ballistic performance than the outdated m/94 projectile.

    The blue tip ammunition shows that this is a"only for peace time shooting". It is of low quality in manufacture and mechanical quality. The blue tip is the later marking of the projectile, the earlier marking was green.

    This is a special one. It seems that the projectile and case is copper washed. It is made 1944 in the Karlsborgs ammunitions fabrik. This is the only one like it i have seen. Experimental?

    This is the first spitzer projectile to be used on trial in the Swedish defence. It is designated spetskula fm/06, spitser bullet trial model m/06.
    The projectile is spitz tipped with a straight sided flat bottom. It resembles in the design to the German s-geschoss

    This cartridge looks like it is manufactured a week ago. The truth is that the case is stamped in 1897. This is a production by K & C, Keller & Co, Hirtenberg, Austria.

    This is the first spitzer projectile to be used on trial in the Swedish defense. It is designated spetskula fm/06, "spitser bullet trial model m/06".
    The projectile is spitz tipped with a straight sided flat bottom. It resembles in the design to the German s-geschoss. It were used as a reference for a long time, and were used in the trials of the developments of the 8x63 ammunition.

    This is a torpedo formed projectile from 1913, trial model m/13 It was a experimental type never been formalized.
    I do not have much of data for this ammunition yet, but the box from 27 September 1916 states it to be a projectile "typ B" of torpedo type. The powder used is the "Gkr III", rifle powder type 3.
