    *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 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!

    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.
