7.5 X 38 SWISS PAT. 47/52

This is part of the post WW2 development for an assault rifle that was based on the 7.5x55 Swiss case.

  

This case has a brass washed finish that identifies it as a proof loading.

   

The specimen above is a grenade launching cartridge with a zinc plated brass case and a small wooden plug at the case mouth.

 

This is a blank load with extended neck.

  

This cartridge has a dark blue base. It is an experimental case with different anvil/primer pocket design.

  

These specimens with the purple base are AP rounds with hardened steel core.
