Unknown cartridge
« on: September 18, 2014, 06:40:23 AM »
Hello,

I've got this unknown cartridge for ammo identification. I'd like to disassemble this cartridge but I have only one piece. Does anybody know, what kind of ammo it is?

Perhaps some variation of a Russian SP-4 round or related round?  I've never seen one in person and don't know much about them, so this is pretty speculative.

It could just be a weird homemade assemblage of junk, for all I know.
