  • Jarmann

    The Jarman 10,15x61R cartridge is probably the least known of the cartridges used in the Swedish forces. It is only used in two types of rifles, used for practice shooting. The rifles were the kammargevär m/1884 (gallery shooting rifle m/1884) and kammarkarbin m/1884 (gallery shooting carbine m/1884). These rifles were altered Remington m/1867, re-barreled and altered from rim fire to centerfire, and for the carbine, fitted with a shorter barrel.

    There is two types of ammunition for this rifles. The full patch round, with a paper patched lead projectile loaded with black powder. This cartridge is not performing well in the carbine as the rifle twist is not suitable for this ammunition.
    The second type is the reduced charge gallery round for short range shooting. It is loaded with a round ball of lead, and a charge of 0,5 - 0,7 gram of black powder. This ammunition were suitable for a shooting distance of 15-30 meters.

    There is also a blind round, fitted with for the time typical unpainted wodden projectile.
