Tungsten cored APCR round for the taper bore schwere PanzerBuschse 41.

Armour penetration was around 75mm @ 100m. The lightweight sPzB leFl (auf Leichter Feldlaffette) 41 version was developed for use by the Fallschirmjager
Pristine condition, no dings or marks anywhere and the headstamp is mint. The Projectile has remained in its case since it was produced in 1943, propellent removed through primer port. Similar round on sale @ JC Militaria.
