Question on abbreviations for ammunition types
 
SMK means Spitzgeschoss mit Stahlkern

PMK means Phosphormunition mit Stahlkern

What does "B" mean? Beleuchtung?

Hello Mikael,

The below listed designations correspond to the german 7,92x57 cartridge, but they should be universal to other calibers as well.
