    This is a standard ball projectile. Today it is mostly used for training.
    I do not know if this actual cartridge have bin used in the Swedish defense, but it is a good representative of how it looks like.
    This cartridge is probably made by Imperial Ammunition Div. of Valcartier ind.

    This tracer illuminates for up to 1500 meters. Is also used in peacetime training. One of the problems with the tracer in AG90 is that illuminates enough to reveal were the shooter is. I have heard rumors that there is a development of a less brightly burning projectile, but i don't know if that is true.

    The cartridge is for wartime use only. The projectile has a Tungsten core that gives it a good penetration on hard targets. The explosives will detonate at impact and fragments the fragmentation jacket to circa 20 pieces. The incendiary compound burns for about 1 sec, time enough for the burning particles to travel some 15 meters.

    The cartridge is manufactured by the Raufoss factory in Norway.

    This ammunition is used by the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team to destroy mines and un detonated ammunition. It is used in AG90 only. The AP capabilities are better than the AP Incendiary explosive round, but the behind armor effect is less.
    The head stamp of this cartridge is "AYR 57" and is made by the Raufoss factory, Norway in 1957.

    This cartridge is of the same design as the 7,62x51 blank ammunition for PSG 90. The base of the cartridge is of steel, and the rest is in plastic. It is used in both the Tksp90 and in AG90 for peace time training. The cartridge is delivered from the Bakelittfabrikken factory in Norway. When used in the AG90, a special, shortened mag is used.
