Ball M33 137,8 114,6 42,5 887-2910 ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Ball M33: Used against non-armored targets.

Tracer M17 137,8 112,7 40,9 * ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Tracer M17: Used for training with the advantage that the trajectory of the projectile can be seen. The trace has a full luminosity from a distance not greater than 200m from the gun muzzle up to a distance not less than 1500m from the gun muzzle. Cartridges loaded with this type of projectile have the same ballistic features as those loaded with Ball M33 projectiles, Armor-Piercing Incendiary M8 and Armor-Piercing Incendiary Tracer M20 projectiles. Cartridges loaded with this type of projectile are used for the same purposes as those with Tracer M33 projectiles.

Tracer M33 137,8 112 37,8 * ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Tracer M33: Used for training with the advantage that the trajectory of the projectile can be seen. The trace has a full luminosity from a distance not greater than 140m from the gun muzzle up to a distance not less than 1500 m from the gun muzzle. Cartridges loaded with this type of projectile are used for training and also in links with cartridges that have other types of projectiles, so that the projectile trajectory can be seen.

Incendiary M1 137,8 115,7 40,8 * ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Incendiary M1: Used against lightly armored targets and those that contains flammable liquids.

Armor Piercing M2 137,8 117 45,1 856-2808 ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Armor-Piercing M2: Used against lightly-armored or non-armored targets, concrete shelters and targets resistant to ball bullets.

API-T M20 137,8 111,4 40,4 * ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Armor-Piercing Incendiary Tracer M20: Cartridges loaded with this type of projectile combine the functions and have the same use as those loaded with Tracer M33 or M17 projectile, or Armor-Piercing Incendiary M8 projectile.

API M8 137,8 114,6 42,6 * ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Armor-Piercing Incendiary M8: Used against lightly armored targets and that contains flammable liquids, non-armored targets, concrete shelters and targets resistant to Ball bullets.

AP-HC 137,8 123 49,3 830-2720 ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Armor-Piercing Hard Core AP-HC: Cartridges loaded with this type of projectile have the same use as those loaded with Armor-Piercing M2 projectiles, but are more efficient. This projectile perforates a plate of SAE 1040, 1045, or similar steel, with a thickness of 22mm and a Brinell hardness of 415, placed at 550m from the muzzle of the gun, mounted in the angle of impact of 90° to the projectile trajectory, i.e., perpendicular to the projectile trajectory.

API-HC 137,8 123 50 830-2720 ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Armor-Piercing Incendiary Hard Core API-HC: This projectile has same function as of the Armor-Piercing Hard Core AP-HC with the advantage that it also has an incendiary effect.

Limited Range Ball 137,8 116,7 44,5 910-2985 ≤ 4,5
Specific use of the projectiles:
Limited Range Ball: For space constrained training firing ranges and sensitive populated surroundings. Similar to Ball M33, with ballistic match at 800m (875yd), but with maximum range not exceeding 3500m (3828yd). No weapon modification or conversion kit is required.
