Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

TechChrim Ammo - Odd Stuff

#1 Post by Zeliard » Thu Dec 14, 2017 8:37 am

So there's a Russian company named TechChrim that seems to mostly specialize in...well, slapping together ammo from whatever's available!

First off they make the .366 TKM designed to be used in shotguns with Paradox bored as well as the 9.6x53 Lancaster, which is designed to be used in oval bored Lancaster rifle barrels.

They also make pistol cartridges with rubber bullets, including ones using reprimed Remington cases from WW2, as well as a .410 FMJ slug (why FMJ? I guess just because they had the spare bullets in that size?). Supposedly at least some of their pistol cartridges are cut down and reformed rifle cartridges.

7.62x25 ammo that's made with cut down 7.62x39 bullets jammed in backwards:

They're also reworking wartime captured 8mm Mauser ammo with old bullets, new primer and new powder:

It's almost as if someone gave them a warehouse or two, some machinery, and said "eh, see what you can do with it".

Here's some of the 8mm for sale:

I know nothing about the seller, so caveat emptor.
