43 Nordenfelt

Data on the year of the introduction of this charge for Nordenfeltovu "machine gun" is somewhat different, the likely year is 1880. The captured charge is in worse condition, but on the other hand, is to see revolutionary for its time feat - hard steel core projectile. The weapon itself was already in the time of its creation obsolete, charge but significantly was ahead of his time. The missile had a speed of 610 m/sec, the right is the bullet 7,92 x 57.
