    Oh, it must be a typo. I found a more official source and it says, bullet diameter = 9.27mm, case length = 38.7mm, cartridge length = 56mm, rim diameter/case head diameter = 11.35mm, bullet weight = 16.0 grams, powder charge = 0.5 grams, muzzle velocity = 310 meters per second. This is for SP-5 and isn't perfect eiither. I am going to go through the military ammunition manual and see if I can get some more exact figures. These are just rounded off figures for a non-technical book.

    Well the super official military ammunition manual doesn't give rim or case head diameter. It does give the acceptable bullet weight, cartridge length, bullet diameter and muzzle velocity ranges.

    Well I have the real thing in my hands so rim diameter and other measurements are not a problem

    Yeah I know you do but I'm still looking for the official cartridge drawing. Your case is a fired one?

    Well I have found a pretty good cartridge drawing for the Russian 9x21mm armor piercing cartridge but not much luck with 9x39 yet.

    The only drawings I have seen are from unofficial prints "out there" on the Interweb.

    It appears you have only searched ENGLISH channels - you may find some more info by using different langage search engines... Also try different search engines as sometimes the different ones yield different results depending on how advertisement-driven they are (e.g. google).

    I'll try to see if someone with access can obtain that info - they should be able to - but you never know.


    The good thing about the fired cases is that Dave @ Pacific didn't seem bothered by using it even though it is steel, so I'm confident I have a "close enough" reamer that an actual factory 9x39 case will work with it. Considering this is only a 300-400 range cartrdige the specs from Pacific should be fine.

    On a side-note, I discovered that the Nosler rounds have an ogive that is tapered enough that it will cause some seating issues for use with my VSS mag without modifications. The ogive is long enough that it really needs to be a more rounded ogive (lower number ogive as I recall) so I can seat the bullet deep enough into the cartridge to feed properly. As of now, I am going to have to add a 2nd cannlure line to the Nosler rounds to ensure they can indeed be seated deep enough. More work for the reloader but what can you do.

    I'm sure mechanically and physically, that a chamber reamer and sizing die can be made that will work without any problems. I have tried different search engines and in different languages. I have the official Russian military ammunition book but it doesn't have technical drawings but it does have a few dimensions and pressures. The info I posted was translated by computer from Russian. Right now I am looking fr 9x39mm, 30mm x173 and 30x165mm technical drawings. The infantry versions of 30mm x173 NATO and 30x165mm Russian, not the naval or aviation versions. The 30mm cannon versions. For those there are some expensive foreign books for sale but I just want the basic cartridge drawings for those cartridges. So my search continues. I have seen 9x39 cartridges and some rifle parts for sale in Europe now. So they are beginning to get around.

    Yeah I have seen you can get dummy cases OVER THERE but due to export restrictions etc. you can't get them over here. Curious, what rifle parts have you seen?
