Fort-17R. Ukrainian Less Lethal (traumatic) pistol.8 July 2012
Today we tell you about the traumatic (less-lethal) ammunition at 9 mm P.A. caliber cartridge by JSC “Tehkrim”. Joint Stock Company “Tehkrim” organized in December 1991 in the city of Izhevsk (Russia) and is engaged in the production of not only less-lethal rounds, but it also produces ammunition for shotguns, test cartridges, aerosol devices, lachrymatory irritant substances (gas cartridges) and special funds for the state military organizations. All products of JSC “Tehkrim” certified by Gosstandart of Russia, but not certified in Ukraine, so the cartridges from the Ukraine, “TEHKRIM” are legal so just how much “is legal” so-called “nesertifikat.”
The issue before us today, chuck “TEHKRIM 9 mm P.A.” is marked “70 J”. This is the most common certified in Russia cartridge which is fired from a pistol IZH-79-9T, nicknamed “Makaritch” gave power of about “50 J”. When firing these cartridges from the same traumatic gun “IL-79-9TM” energy is slightly higher and amounts to about “70 J”. According to cleverly used the fact that retailers rounds, but in fact any specified energy bullets can not be considered reliable because depending on the design of a barrel, the same cartridge can produce very different energy, and + \ – 20Dzh in this case no special role plays. Regardless of the label, “TEHKRIM 9 mm P.A. – 50 J “and” 9 mm TEHKRIM P.A. – 70 J “is exactly the same ammo, differing only marking on the package.
Less-lethal chuck “TEHKRIM 9 mm” consists of a cartridge case with primer, powder charge and rubber ball.

After the shot, and a collision with an obstacle, the bullet almost completely retains its shape. At the touch of a bullet hard enough.
A charge of gunpowder in the cartridges’ TEHKRIM 9 mm P.A. “stable, deviation is not more than 0.01 grams. The cartridge provides the stable functioning of the automatic traumatic guns, including pistols, a heavy gate, such as “Fort-12R,” even with the two springs.

Terms of the test. Ambient temperature – “20 C”. Weapons – “Gun Fort 12R, trunk diameter 5.6 mm, the cylinder.” The distance from the muzzle to the point of measuring the speed chronograph watch – “1.5 m” distance from the muzzle to the point of contact with an obstacle – “1.5 m” is used as a barrier from a solid block of clay sculpture flesh-colored production of “Gamma”, Mr. . Moscow. Weight of the block (cube) 2 kg, dimensions 120h120h120 mm. Next, we will call it “ballistic clay.” Before the shooting, the powder in the cartridges, and a rubber ball are weighed, that would weed out random results because of significant deviations in the sample powder and bullet weight.
