German 8mm

J he port is inconvenient, and can only contain merchantmen of small burthen, the depth of water not being above two fathoms or two fathoms and a half, and it being troublesome to load continue reading unload goods.

The 7. In its day, the 7. In the 21st century it is still a popular sport and hunting cartridge that is factory-produced in Europe and the United States. The parent cartridge, upon which the 7. Rifle Testing Commission , as the new smokeless propellant introduced as Poudre B in the pattern 8mm Lebel had started a military rifle ammunition revolution. Besides the chambering, the bore designated as "S-bore" was also dimensionally redesigned.

The pattern 7. In German military service the Patrone 88 was replaced in and by the S Patrone. As the bolt thrust of the 7. The rimless cartridge cases have been used as parent case for several other necked down and necked up cartridges and a rimmed variant.

Due to restrictions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles , the Germans were not able to develop or sell any military equipment after World War I. In the post-war years, 7. This, and the cartridge's high performance and versatility, led to the 7. This made the round the most widely used military rifle cartridge in the world during the inter-war years. Apart from being the standard rifle cartridge of the German and Polish armed forces, it was also used by the armed forces of Great Britain in the Besa machine gun , which was mounted in some of their tanks and other armoured vehicles, as well as being extensively used by the Chinese, especially early in the war.

It saw limited uses by the various police and paramilitary units in East Germany before being completely phased out of service the s. Its military use continues today in some former Yugoslavia republics. Rifles formerly manufactured for the Wehrmacht , captured by the Allies and acquired by Israel were important in the Arab—Israeli War. Israel did not have a domestic arms industry and could not manufacture rifles but it could produce replacement parts and refurbish weapons. Israel only used its Mauser rifles in their original configuration for a short period, when NATO countries adopted a standard rifle cartridge, the 7.

After World War I the Treaty of Versailles imposed comprehensive and complex restrictions upon the post-war German armed forces the Reichswehr.

According to the treaty the Reichswehr could on a limited scale continue using the 7. The Treaty of Versailles however effectively nixed the civilian use of 7. During the mid s Germany stopped obeying the restrictions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles and gradually the civilian use of 7.

In post World War 2 Germany the production of the various preceding chamberings is allowed again, but these chamberings have become rare in post produced arms.

The rimmed variant of the 7. The naming of this cartridge is cultural and epoch dependent and hence not uniform around the world. This list is not conclusive and other nomenclature or designation variations might be encountered. Remarkably, both the 7. The widespread use in German military Gewehr 98 and Karabiner 98k service rifles designed and manufactured by Mauser caused the "Mauser" tag, though the Mauser company had nothing to do with the development of this cartridge.

The letter "J" often mentioned by English speaking sources is actually an "I" for Infanterie German for " infantry ". A stamped "I" at the cartridge bottom in writing styles used in the past in Germany could be easily mistaken for a "J".

Even in the 21st century the "I" is often substituted by a "J" in English speaking communities and German ammunition manufacturers often write "JS" instead of "IS" to avoid confusing customers. This designation has the power of law for civil use in C. Since the SAAMI has no authority to issue nomenclature rulings, the nomenclature used for this cartridge can vary in the United States.

The German military used 7,9mm as designation or omitted any diameter reference and only printed the exact type of loading on ammunition boxes during World War II.

The Polish military used 7,9mm or 7,92mm designations mostly 7,9mm. The Norwegian military used the designation 7,92x57 mm, sometimes "7,92 Lett" "lett" meaning light to differentiate it from the similar but not interchangeable 7,92x61 Tung heavy.

The British military's Besa machine gun was chambered for the 7. The British referred to this ammunition as Cartridge SA, 7. The exterior shape of the case was designed to promote reliable case feeding and extraction in bolt action rifles and machine guns alike, under extreme conditions.

According to the official C. Most European ammunition manufacturers load to a lower C. The Germans had started using steel cases in World War I , "and by the end of , most German ammunition had that type of case. The German military ammunition manufacturer Polte produced brass cartridge cases weighing The data for the 7.

Patrone of and S. The German standard s. Patrone "s. It was loaded with a The s. From its introduction the s. Patrone was mainly issued for aerial combat and as of in the later stages of World War I to infantry machine gunners. The desire for adapting new shorter barreled rifles and introduction of the Karabiner 98k were reasons for changing the standard German service ball rifle cartridge.

It was found that the s. Patrone , originally designed for long range machine gun use, produced less muzzle flash out of rifles that had a less long barrel and also provided better accuracy. Because of this the S Patrone was phased out in and the s. Patrone became the standard German service ball cartridge in the s when the German rearmament program started. For recognition the primer sealant was green, and it had a yellow-tip marked bullet. The regular s. During World War II German snipers were issued with purpose-manufactured sniping ammunition, known as the 'effect-firing' s.

In Germany introduced S. The projectile core was covered by a relatively thin layer of lead. For recognition the primer annulus or whole primers were colored blue.

The mild steel core weights varied between the four production sub-executions from 5. To compensate for the lead reduction the mild steel core was redesigned resulting in a projectile lengthened to The S. Special ammunition included: [23] [34] [35]. British cartridges included "ball", "armour-piercing", "tracer", and "incendiary". Blanks and a drill round were also available for instruction purposes. The drill round was an aluminium bullet fixed in a chromium-plated case which had three deep lengthwise recesses painted red to identify it.

Ammunition was supplied in belted form with rounds per belt. The ball case was filled with a charge of around 45 grains 3 g of nitro-cellulose. The British cartridge was used in only one weapon—the Besa machine gun. This was a Czechoslovak ZB design adopted shortly before the war as a move towards rimless ammunition across the armed service.

However the move was disrupted by the lead up to war. The BESA was only fitted to tanks and armoured cars of British design the original Czech design was also produced for German use following the occupation of Czechoslovakia and captured German ammunition was used when available.

The cartridges manufactured in Poland during the interwar period were mainly copies or modifications of the corresponding original German cartridge designs. The standard rifle cartridge was loaded with the 9. For machine guns a cartridge variant loaded with the heavier The variant loaded with the armor-piercing P bullet przeciwpancerny was a copy of the German SmK cartridge. The Romanian military used the 7. It gradually converted over in the s and s to using Warsaw Pact standard calibers.

The case mouth and primer pocket were sealed with a red sealant. Since it is from the portion after the neck, it chambers and feeds safely and extracts positively. Some experts mistakenly believed it to be an experimental rimless pointed-bullet Hungarian "sniper rifle cartridge" developed by Hungary's Factory 22 Andezit Muvek until it became available as surplus.

It is not clear why the cartridge was manufactured, as the Romanian military used the standard Communist-Bloc 7. Some believe it may have been for an experimental self-loading rifle or for a Communist Bloc client. At the end of the s the Yugoslav National Army adopted a 7.

In the s the JNA started to develop an new more accurate 7. Other adoption of the ammunition where tracer round 7. This process was interrupted by the fall of Yugoslavia and brought the 7.

The gun was used in every major battle and theater where Germany fought including North Africa, Eastern Europe, Grrman, and the Balkans. Yugoslavia 8mm captured many of the weapons and refurbished them, and so did the Soviet Union. They then used both the vertical and horizontal measurements of the reduced gold loquat tree to measure german. Combined with a slight bolt retraction at the last stage of the bolt opening cycle, caused by the cammed surface german the rear receiver bridge, this results in a positive cartridge case extraction. In making the conversion, both main locking lugs were typically removed.
