    Default 35x228 Oerlikon fragen

    bought these three 35x228 cartridges yesterday.

    The red painted catridge on the left has the text 'autofrettage' painted on. I think this points out the productionmethod of the projectile, either the barrel type to be used;

    The middle one is most probably South African practice, however I am not shure. Accoring to X, REF means that it is a ballistic reference, although he can explain to me what that is.

    The left one I was told is a frangible, however I am not shure about that too.

    Who can help me on the correct designation and purpose,

    Thanks in advance,
    Regards, DJH

    Three more 35x228 cartridges of which I have no type designation.

    I have no clue about the left one. The sabot and nosepiece are aluminium made. The drivingband is white nylon. It may be a test model, a drivingband test, a half product, a fake in the worst case, although I doubt the latter.

    The middle one seems to be a sabot test either a penetrator shape test. I've seen a couple around on collectors meetings and auctioning forums, so it could be a known type.

    The right one supposedly is a driving band test, using a plastic drivingband.

    If anybody has any info regarding these cartridges like type designation, nomenclature or country of origin, please let me know

    Thanks in advance,
    regards, DJH
